so i was thinking about doing it myself but how hard was it?, i have sewn nothing, well i have roughly sewn some badges on my old scout uniform when i was 10, and i have done the odd Halloween costume, again roughly, .........
i don't care if it has piping, so that is not an issue
can you give me a description of how you did it?,
in my mind you would cut all the panels to the size and shape they would be, adding about an inch for sewing arond all the edges, then sew them together adding a zipper, then turn them inside out and put the foam inside????
does that make sense?, am i missing something?, any tips to add?, maybe I will buy fabric for one cushion and giver a go, if it turn out bad i am not out much, if it turn out good then just keep going, i mean i have all winter to get it done, so i am not in a hurry!!!!!
