Make your own Adirondack chair cushion following the steps in this infographic. A good quality Adirondack cushion can cost almost a hundred dollars from a retailer and if you need more than one it gets expensive quickly. Save money and do it yourself.
- Fabric of choice
- Measuring tape
- Fabric marker
- Sewing machine
- A flat table
Measuring & Cutting
- Measure the width and the length of the seat and the backrest of the chair.
- Cut the foam into a rectangular shape based on the measurements.
- Trace the shape of the seat and backrest on the foam.
- Cut the traced shape to the foam.
Making the Pattern
- Using the shaped foam re-trace the foam onto the fabric. This will be the front and the back portion of the cushion.
- Add a margin around the shape equal to half the thickness of the foam.
- Cut the shape following the margin on the fabric.
- Fold the fabric in half and mark the center where all the edges from both halves meet each other. It would help to pin a few sections to keep it from moving.
- Sew the edges together leaving a small section enough to fit the foam and your hand.
- Turn the fabric inside out through the unsewn portion and flatten the fabric to check.
Inserting the Foam
- Insert the foam through the unsewn gap by folding or rolling the foam into itself and insert it through the hole.
- Flatten out the foam in the fabric evenly with one hand through the hole while straightening out the fabric from the outside.
- Sew the gap together and fit the cushion on the chair.
