How to Make My Own Sectional Throws

    • 1). Measure the sectional to determine its dimensions. Wrapping the cushions and the furniture separately helps keep the throw more securely in place, so remove the cushions and measure from the floor in the front to the floor in the back. Follow the contours of the sectional. Measure from the floor on the left side of each piece to the floor on the right. Record the measurements for each piece.

    • 2). Measure the cushions as a unit. Place all the seat cushions together for one part of the sectional and measure the complete circumference front to back and side to side, as you will wrap the cushions as a single section.

    • 3). Cut or use a piece of material that is at least twice the width plus 1 inch, twice the length and three-quarters of the depth of each set of cushions that fit together in each sectional piece. Wrap the cushions so that the overlap lies smoothly underneath the cushions. Use large safety pins to pin the overlap together, if you want a firmer fit and the ability to quickly remove the cover for washing.

    • 4). Cut or use a piece of fabric that is at least as large as the contour measurements you took in Step 1. Center the fabric on the sectional without the cushions in place. Pin the edge of the fabric to the front of a section piece using T-pins, just under the front lip. Smooth the fabric across the contours and over the back, pinning in place with T-pins as you did the front.

    • 5). Secure the fabric to the underside of the sectional arm using T-pins, if the sectional has an arm that extends out from the side. Wrap the excess from the front and back with neat pleats to smooth the cover on the sides, and T-pin into place under the edge of the sectional.

    • 6). Place the wrapped cushions on top of the main cover, and adjust both pieces of fabric as necessary to prevent stress on the pinned areas.

    • 7). Cut a piece of fabric that is 2 inches larger than twice the length, 1 inch larger than twice the width and three-quarters the depth of any sectional throw pillows. With right-sides together, pin and sew two consecutive sides together, so that one side is open. Insert the sectional pillow, fold excess inside and pin into place.
