I have a cheap leather couch that I really enjoy sitting on. The problem is that one of the seams on a cushion is coming apart. I know that my rear-end is heavy, so what's the best way to sew it back together so that it won't come apart again?

I think this would be more appropriate for sewing.SE: area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/51580/sewing – BMitch Oct 28 '13 at 16:49

This question appears to be off-topic because it is about upholstery and sewing rather than home improvement. – BMitch Oct 28 '13 at 16:50
I wasn't sure if this question would be considered on topic or not, but I decided to ask it after seeing that there are a number of questions about furniture on this site. For instance, here diy.stackexchange.com/questions/15518/… is a question about painting a cabinet. I would have thought that if painting a cabinet is on-topic, repairing a couch is on-topic too. – Rice Flour Cookies Oct 28 '13 at 17:46
