I have since realized velvet can be a little tricky. I will show you what I mean in a bit.
For the bottom fabric that covers the springs I thought it would be fun to use a pattern. The cushion will cover it but I think it will make a fun surprise whenever someone looks under the cushion. It was a remnant I picked up for a couple bucks so it was worth it.
Re-attach the edge pieces with screws.
I love how clean the bottom seat looks. But... since you got this far I will tell you the ugly truth. I had a mini melt down. Like why on earth are you doing this and documenting it on your blog, your not an expert, kind of meltdown. The reason stemmed from hot gluing the corners. I had to remove some staples from the bottom after I glued to adjust and re-staple. The issue that I spoke of earlier with velvet is that it stretches. Good when you want it to but not so good when you redo things. It gets a little stretched out looking like here.
