No Sew Seat Cushions

4 Materials
6 Hours

We have old, worn, thin seat cushions on our kitchen chairs and I wanted to change that. I'm terrible with a sewing machine but I was determined to do this project!

I bought some square foam cushions and fabric that matched our kitchen colors.

Our old seat cushions were slightly too small for the chairs so I took those and I drew an outline around it on the new foam, adding a couple extra inches. When I had the foam cut to shape, I traced around that on the fabric, leaving just about an inch to fold over. I cut out two seat shapes from the fabric - one for the top, one for the bottom.

Then I bought this twisted rope with 1/4 edging from JoAnn Fabric and I used fabric glue to attached one piece of the cut fabric to the rope edging. After that, I took the second piece of cut fabric and glued the two pieces together, around the foam cushions .

They aren't perfect, but they are thicker, more comfortable, and much cuter than our old, flat seat cushions!
