“BONUS TIP #1. A coil spring needs to be replaced if it’s broken or it’s getting tired. To check a tired spring, place it on a table and press it down with the flat of your hand. If it starts to lean over to the side, replace it.”

Excerpt From: “Upholstery Tips, Tricks & Trade Secrets.” Page 9

“BONUS TIP #14. When making box cushions it’s tempting to cut the height of your side boxing fabric the thickness of foam + two seam allowances. To get a snug fit add only one seam allowance. By cutting your side panel smaller in this way, the cushion will have a nice shape, fill out the sides better, and allow the piping cord to sit smoothly.”
