DIY: Quick Fix For Pet-Gnawed Sofa

For those of us who live with a cat or a dog, the joys of pet ownership are nearly endless. There's the thrill of returning home from a busy day to an enthusiastic pup, or the contentment of having a kitty curl up in your lap while you're reading at night. However, one thing that both cats and dogs are often guilty of doing is wrecking furniture. Even though my dog isn't allowed on the furniture while we're home, we still have to throw a sheet over the sofa because we know that as soon as we close the door and leave for work, Ozzie will jump up on the sofa and settle in. It's even more of a bummer when a pet rips up furniture.

Instead of replacing her sofa when her dog went a little nuts on it, one Craftster member came up with a creative solution to remedy her ripped sofa arm. To see what she did,


With the use of some felt and her glue gun, Craftster member Wristslapsandtoetaps was able to create a whimsical, unique solution for her doggie-ripped sofa. I think that her solution goes perfectly with her Dwell Studio For Target bird pillows.

Good idea but doesn't the felt only invite the dog to chew it off? My cat is starting to claw at the arm of my sofa but gluing string all over it would definitely only encourage her!!

How crafty ... I'm afraid this would not look so good on my sofa though

Clever idea! I'm going to remember that not just for pet wrecks but for non-removable stains imposed upon the furniture by my very messy daughter!
