Nothing is permanent under the moon. This is also true for upholstered furniture, which is daily “tortured” by the claws of pets, which is a canvas for little artists, and is hard to bear the “raids” of guests. Even new sofas and armchairs quickly lose their attractiveness, which is immensely depressing for the owners. The only salvation in such a situation is a removable cover.

Monochrome surfaces, on the contrary, allow even bright fabrics, but there is one requirement - the pattern on them should be small.
The most straightforward way to achieve what you want is to make a solid “cover” for the sofa. The parts are cut out, then connected into a single whole. For the operation "sofa cover" it is necessary to prepare:
