Sofa So Far

Here's the frame of my new sofa. I covered the cardboard with Aida cloth. (Thanks Casey!) There is no padding on this part and I just used glue on the edges. I didn't want any glue to soak through the fabric where it could be seen.

The next challenge is to figure out how to cover the top of the arms of the sofa. I thought maybe these little strips of paper covered with the fabric might work?

I want them to look finished with no edges showing. Hope I can do this? :D

Kathi, you are on the right track. Cover the flat sides first and clip the edges and bring them around to the narrow edge. Make sure that they don't overlap. Then Miter the corners(Cut diagonally) on the fabric covering the strips. Then simply glue those on to cover the narrow part. It will look better that way since the fabric is so thick.
