Make a cushion for your garden or patio chair without a zipper

How do you make a cushion for your patio or garden chair without having an old cushion that you could use as an example? It’s much easier than you think and without having to use a zipper. An old shopping bag will help you, but just a piece of cardboard  will work too.

Watch the video we made about it below. The subtitles are the explanation.

The thing you should think about is the fabric. In general, an outdoor fabric is used that can withstand sunlight and rain. The yarn you use to stitch the cover must also be able to withstand a beating. I always use half polyester and half cotton yarn.

A good brand for outdoor fabrics is Sunbrella. The fabrics of this brand are available in many different designs and versions. They are available through your local furniture upholsterer.
