“To get corners smooth, you may end up with a little fold. If it’s a angled edge, on a attenuate cushion, with failing fabric, you’ll apparently get a nice bland annular corner. If it’s a aciculate bend — a aboveboard bend — you ability accept to put a little bend in it. Aloof bend anniversary bend the aforementioned way. Whatever you bend on one side, do it on the other, and it’ll attending fine,” Alger said.
