Recovering Patio Chair Cushions

Kay DatzKMS Woodworks


So over the weekend, I bought a patio set at a yard sale. The set is in good conditions but the cushions need to be recovered. What is the easiest (and cheapest!) way to do this. I'm not much of a sewer. I've covered small pillows using a hot glue gun but that's it. I'm attaching a pic of the style of cushion I got off the internet. Thanks!!!!
This is the style cushion, not the actual one I have!

    If you are a skilled seamstress you could whip these out in a hurry for a decent price...Some zippers and fabric being your cost considerations. If your not so hot in the sewing some basic ready made cushions, may be a bit more $$ but well worth it for speed and convenience.

    I was faced with a similar situation except that my set was a wicker set by Lloyd Flanders-new cushions were gong to run @ $1000 and I only paid $100 for the sofa and 2 chairs so checked around and found better prices but still in 700-800 range so decided that I would do it myself. I took apart the old one and used as pattern HOWEVER if you are not halfway decent at the sewing machine I would suggest looking at Trees and trends or Homegoods, etc. I know Lowe's has cushions similar to the one pictured. Again may not find what you want. Good luck-don't give up-you will find a solution.
