How to Make a Simple Cushion for Your Chair

By February 17th, 2023No Comments1 min read

Swivel chairs are great, but if it’s anything like this one from IKEA, it doesn’t go so high enough for my craft table. So I decided to ditch the old pad and make a cushion for my chair. In my last blog post, I shared how I printed on fabric using a stencil, so, if you’d rather make your custom fabric, that would be awesome!  There are a few videos on how to make a cushion, so if you’re new to sewing, here is a video that can help you make one (with tie-backs too).

What you’ll need: a sewing machine, sewing supplies, fabric, interfacing (for light fabric), pillow stuffing or fiber fill like this one on Michaels

If you would like to see my process, I shared a reel of how I made my pattern and cushion. I would love to see what you make too. So, feel free to share it with me on Instagram.
