I started working on the sofa yesterday... I cut a slice off the foam I got at Joann's (50% off) and stuffed it into one of the back cushions. The problem is that the feather inserts are sewn shut so I just put it in the back. Well, that's not going to work unfortunately. I need to open the feather inserts (seam ripper) and carefully put in the foam, surround it with existing feathers and then sew the thing back up. I know how to sew, but the idea of 50 year old feathers is just scary. I can picture my living room full of feathers (very old feathers). I just have to try it and see how it goes.
