My friend's puppy got bored while she was at work and destroyed the couch she had saved for for years. She was brave and trusted me as I cut out a 1 yd square of fabric off the back of her couch. She sewed a piece of coordinating fabric onto the back, while I sewed a "patch" on the front.
The finished product! (Good thing our living rooms are so small that our furniture has to be against a wall :)
