I drafted up the pattern and tested it with some denim. As you can see I have no pattern weights, and use random heavy objects! (tape measure, plyers, container of glue, etc!)
I wanted them to be very clean and structured with perfect right angles, so they are a "box" style cushion with a zipper. That made the corners a bit tricky, but finally after sewing the second cross I got the hang of it and worked out all the sewing kinks. The last one I sewed was definitely the best.
I was anxious to get them done, so I ignored any strings or devices to attach the cushions to the chair. Right now they are just sitting there, which is fine, but I think I might figure out a way to tie them down without using self-fabric ties... maybe leather straps or something...
I'm very happy with the results, and can't wait to get the next project done. This one has been in the works for a while- lights over our dining table! Finally! Stay tuned. More projects to come.
