How to Make Outdoor Chair Cushions

Create a new look for your porch or patio set. Make your own outdoor chair cushions. You and your guests will appreciate the comfort that the cushions offer. Try making some comfy cushions for your next camping or RV outing. Chair cushions are essential for outdoor comfort and style. Special fabric and foam should be used when sewing outdoor projects. These fabrics are usually water, mildew, stain and UV resistant.

1. Measure the perimeter of your chair. Write dimensions of your chair on a piece of paper. Add a 5/8-inch around, for the seam-allowance. Determine the desired depth of your chair cushion. Divide the depth of the cushion in half and add that amount to the length and width of your fabric. Make a paper pattern using the measurements. Take the original dimensions for the chair and make a separate pattern for the foam.

2. Cut fabric using pattern as a guide. Lay fabric right sides facing together on a table, pin to hold in place. Thread your sewing machine. Sew fabric along 5/8-inch seam-allowance. Leave a section open for the foam. Turn right sides out, and press with a iron.

3. Lay the pattern over the foam. Use a marker and trace shape on to the foam. Cut the foam with scissors or a electric carving knife. Stuff foam into the fabric cover and sew the opening closed.
