Years of sewing,.... never actually make the cushion before....
Requested by my husband, who happen to sitting down a lot on the plastic chair these days. Some material is recycle, which is the inner sponge. He found the sponge on the side of the street, seemed like somebody just done some refurbishing in the house. Square and rectangular sponges inside the box. They are clean aswell. He brought it home and demanded the cushion for his chair.

I postpone the project quite a while,... and today I thought I need to get it done and over with, bcoz I want to sew a dress!

The material is tapestry, suitable for couch or sofa. I can't remember what I want to make with the fabric  before. Ah,... nevermind, at least now come out usefull in the right time.

Basically I cut square (the size is up to you), my size is 40cm each side. I add 2cm for the heigh and 1.5cm for the seam allowance. Added all to each side. Sew all around, leave 10cm for the opening. Turn it inside out, insert the sponge, sew the opening close and you´r done.
If you use the colourfull material, the cushion would look more cheerfull.

I made two cushions to sit on and two others to hold the back. Very comfy and I'm very pleased with the result. Making the cushion is actually very rewarding, super easy project to start with, and everyone in the family can enjoy the cushion too.

Happy cushion everyone!
