Making new patio furniture cushions - need advice! (with photo)
Hi! This is one of my first posts. I love this forum so much!
I recently purchased a new lake home and the owners left their patio furniture. The furniture is only a year old and in perfect condition. I would like to make new cushions for it as these are the original ones and not very comfy, plus the fabric has moved on the foam. I would really prefer to not have the 'boxed' kind of cushions and I want to use a much thicker foam. If I use thicker foam and then put batting over it, can I just sew covers without the piping (or whatever that is called)? Or will it look too homemade?
Also, this set is inside of a 3-season room and will never be outside, so can I also use a regular upholstery fabric?
I'm an experienced quilter but rarely have sewn anything else -- think this is too much to take on?
Any help and advice appreciated! Thank you!
