Small Bench Cushion
« on: May 03, 2019, 14:36:59 PM »
My make this morning has been a bench seat cushion cover.
I ordered the fabric and got the foam cut to size in a local shop, bought some stockinette (as suggested by @Bodgeitandscarper on another thread) online.
I thought about piping, but would have had to order some cord, so did faux piping, (TopStitching the edges). The back is envelope style, but I've put a press stud in the middle as is a long cushion.

I'm happy enough with it, though I seem to have been a bit slapdash with my measuring. I might one day tidy it up, but no promises.

@fajita how did you deal with the ends?  I have two pieces of foam to cover as bench cushions for the garden and am unsure how to do the ends.

Looks good, did the stockinette help?  I may have suggested it, but I've only read about it and never actually used it.

I zigzagged all the edges. Then joined them all bar about 1.5 cm at each end. This allowed me to put the ends in, sewing up to the stitching.

((Have had a friend round with wine, so might review this post tomorrow))

@Bodgeitandscarper yes, the stockinette did help. The foam was very grippy with the fabric without it.

@Efemera I don't recall the make of the fabric, sorry. I've disposed of my scraps do can't check.
