Railroading Fabric

Hear the word “railroad” and you think of train stations, the Wild West, and, if you’re like us, Monopoly boards. Certainly design is not the first thing to mind. Okay, unless you’re Emily Henderson. But lo and behold, it’s a common term in the world of re-upholstery rescue. Railroading Fabric is that genius method used to eliminate the unsightly seam, and can lead to some rather eye-catching results, as Spruce Austin shows us in today’s Daily DIY.
