Instruction Guide:
These are not exact instructions. But hopefully will provide you with enough of a guide to try it out yourself.

Pin pieces together

Pin your pieces together rights sides facing with your cording wedge between them. Remember that the fold in your binding or cording has to be put right edge inside.  So when turned out it is facing the right way.

The shortest length of edging will be at the back. Each of the ties are 6.5 inches in length. The rest of the edging will run from the back  right round the front back to the other side at the back.

Sew together

Once you’re ready to sew. The measurements above include your ¼″ seam allowance.

Ties

Check that what you have sewn fits snug around the foam. Sew the bottom half on leaving a gap at the back, big enough to fit your hand into.

Insert Foam

Turn right side out and roll up the foam so it’s easier to slide in.

Back Detail

Click to view any of the pictures larger. Hand stitch the gap closed. Tie on to chair back and it’s all done! It’s not mega complicated, but does need a little patience. A great little cushion though.

If you need more pictures, please leave a comment below of what you’d like to see a better picture of and I’ll post it. You can make a matching back pad to sit at the top cross bar, with a 2″x10″x1″ section as pictured with the seat foam.
