With a needle, thread, a few buttons, and 15 minutes, you can convert your couch cushions from sagging, shapeless sacks to sculpted, snugly supports.
Step 1: Remove the Stuffing
Step 2: Thread a Needle
Stick thread through the eye of the needle.
Loop the thread and tie a knot, leaving yourself a foot or two of thread to work with.
Step 3: Sew the Cushion Together With Buttons
If you're unfamiliar with how to sew buttons, there are some good instructables (like this one).
I used four buttons to pinch my cushion together in two places. Depending on the size of your cushion and how firm you want it, you might use more or less.
Step 4: Stuff the Stuffing Back In
Step 5: Enjoy
