Sandy, if I didn't have cushions I would find a fabric store that sells foam. here in Rochester we have Howards Fabric and foam, but I bet there is a similar place in the Cuse. I'd make patterns out of paper, and draw the footprints on them. And then find someone with a bandsaw. It cuts foam like butter. As for the covers, Scamps prices aren't bad, if you can stand the colors. Shipping on the covers would be reasonable, its the bulkiness of the foam that is a problem. Otherwise, they aren't hard to make.
