1. Choose your fabric. Any kind of non-stretch material is fine (stretchy material will probably work too but I'm not sure if this method is the best way for that kind of fabric.) I'm using a lovely remnant that matches my living room decor that my MIL Angie kindly gave me.
2. Measure your cuhion pad. Mine is 16 inches square. Measure across the fullest part. If it is very full, squash it down just a little before measuring.

|Back pieces with seams folded and pressed.|
When you're done it should look like the picture below. Do this to both back pieces.
|Wrong side Right side|
7. Place the front piece right side up. Place one half of the back piece right side down on top of the front piece with the seam you've just sewn towards the inside of the cushion. Make sure the edges and corners match up and any patterns are running in the same direction. Place the second half of the back piece, matching up the corners and edges on the other side of the front piece. The two seams should overlap. Pin in place.
|All pinned and ready to go. Sorry about the picture quality - I was sewing quite late.|
|Sorry this is blurred. It was the best of a bad bunch.|
|Back, you can just make out the edge of the opening.|
