Decorative Tufted Cushions to Create a Beautiful Living Room Design
Tufting can turn an ordinary piece of furniture into a luxurious piece of upholstered furniture. The process of tufting consists of threading embroidery floss and a large needle through layers of fabric and foam batting to create a pulled cluster effect. Tufting is common on bed headboards, ottomans, chairs, couches and even memo boards. An old chair can be recycled by removing the old cushions and carefully removing the fabric. The old fabric can then be used as a pattern to cut out new fabric pieces for the cushions. Once the cushions are covered with new fabric, tufts are created by pulling a needle threaded with embroidery floss through the back of the cushion and out to the front of the cushion. The needle is looped through a button and pulled through the front of the cushion to the back where is is tightly knotted.
