I haven’t finished Sam’s ruffled bedding but I have a good reason why…..I was helping my friend make this…A Bench Seat Cushion for her guest room. Keep reading, I’ve added a tutorial so you can make your own DIY Bench Seat Cushion!
Here’s a little TUTORIAL!
Here is the really long piece of foam she bought from JoAnn’s… (we had to glue an extra piece on to fit the length of her 10 foot seat, we just used hot glue.
Then we added batting for extra fluff. Wrapped it around and used hot glue to secure the edges, just a thin layer. (careful not to burn your fingers!)
Then we sewed the 2 long side pieces to one of the short end pieces and pinned them to the top, right sides together. Then sew…your piping trim will be sandwiched between the top piece and side pieces, sew very close to the piping (even though you can’t see it, it is easy to tell where it is under the fabric) leave about 3 inches un-sewn at the ends of your long pieces.
Turn right side out and stuff your cushion inside (this was a bit difficult to do because of the size of our seat, so we unstitched a small opening on one side of the cushion, just big enough for a hand to fit through in order to grab and pull the cushion to the end).
Close the velcro opening (hand stitch your other opening closed if you made one) and put your cushion in place!
Stand back and admire your new bench seat!
