Re: Hiw to fix cigarette burn on a fabric sofa

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @jason010. It's wonderful to have you join us and many thanks for your question about fixing a burn mark.

A couple of ideas would be to either cut and small circular repair piece from fabric under the lounge and superglue that in place. Alternatively, you can use a razor blade and scrape across the fabric collecting fibers as you go. You can then place a small amount of superglue in the hole and fill the rest with the fibers. 


Even painting the area a grey colour instead of the brown and black would prevent the eye from being drawn immediately to the area


I'd be keen to hear if any of our knowledgeable members like @TedBear or @Noyade had any ideas.



See something interesting? Give it the thumbs up!
