Making Morris Chair Cushions


Learn How to Make Cushions for a Morris Chair

In this video, I will teach you how to get the measurements for your foam from the chair, determine the fabric cuts for a boxed seat cushion, calculate fabric cuts for the back cushion with Turkish corners.  You will also learn how to sew both a boxed seat cushion with a zipper and turkish corner back cushion with a zipper.  We will also cover adding Dacron to your high-density seat foam and softer back foam.

You will also learn how to construct the zippers, attach cording and boxing.
