In this Skill’s video we will demonstrate how to measure an existing cushion cover for a new foam insert.

The cover used in this video required a 4.5” high density firm foam insert. We will add a layer of bonded Dacron to the foam for the look and feel requested by client.

Kim will show you how to cut the new piece of foam and attach the Dacron.

You will also see how Kim uses a vacuum and plastic to assist in placing the new foam in the existing cover.
