I have always been a pack rat. I love to create & repurpose. My husband is a sounding board.(Honey I don't get your drawing!)We are retired grandparents. I painted adult & childrens clothes for 10 years before my husband retired. We set up in Canton Texas. I got lots of goodies during those years. We still go to flea markets, garage sales & road side p/u.

Re: what to do with cute old purses, flowers, and ribbon

OK here goes. I hand drew and hand painted children’s and adult clothes for 10 years.(Retired)I have not painted a couch. I think you will have to make sure there are no stains (could look like greasy mess) or scotch guard finish. The fabric paint I used was Deka Permanent Fabric Paint. The other brand is Pearl all surface ultimate paint. This one you have to water down quite a bit. If you don’t it gets stiff. Hope this helps and good luck.
