  (this is my first post i.e. I'm sorry if this is in the wrong place!)

   My dog got a wild hair and decided to tear an irreparable hole into our new sofa...so what did I do?  I got out some felt and my glue gun and did some embellishing.








the culprit!

I am all too familiar with the guilty look your puppy has on its face. I have a yellow lab and she has gone as far as to eat one of our walls down to the drywall, so I feel your pain!  Anyways, the couch looks amazing and it makes me want to hide treats in our cushions so I can make my couch cute too!  Beautiful job!

That is so cool! I'd do that even if it wasn't messed up!
I may have to steal this idea for future use (if you don't mind, of course)... hmm...

Nice job! Your crafting skills really perks up the couch. I hope this isn't a dumb question, but are those tiles covered in aluminum foil? (That's what it looks like to me. Grin)

That is so amazing!  I love it so much, and it's the perfect fix.  I would never have guessed you did it to cover a blemish.
