Pin-Fit Top and Bottom of Cushion

Place perimeter piece of fabric back onto cushion with seams facing out. Tuck twill tape ties down, so they don't get pinned or sewn into the top or bottom. Set painted fabric on cushion with design facing down. Make sure design is evenly placed. Pin seat piece to perimeter piece with piping sandwiched between the two pieces. The piping should face into the cushion and cross where the two ends meet. Using sewing machine zipper foot, sew along the pin line and trim excess seam allowance. Repeat on bottom of seat, working inside-out, but leave an opening large enough to insert foam cushion.

Hand Sew Cushion Closure

Turn cover right-side-out and insert cushion. Pin opening closed and sew together using a running stitch and all-purpose needle. Remove pins and trim threads. Run a bead of fabric glue along edge of twill tape ties to prevent fraying. Foam cushion and cover are machine washable.
