This is equal to twice the width and twice the length of the cushion, plus 1". Cut this boxing strip width equal to the thickness of the foam plus 1". For this particular cushion it would be 81"x 4".
3. Lay the top piece of fabric on a table, right side facing up.
4. Pin the long edge of the boxing strip to the perimeter of the top piece, right sides together. Align the raw edges.
5. Sew the two pieces together using a 1/2" seam.
6. Sew the bottom cushion piece to the remaining long edge of the box, making sure to put the right sides of the fabric together. Leave one of the four sides open to insert the cushion.
7. Trim the seams and turn the fabric right side out.
8. Insert the Weather Soft&™ cushion into the cover.
9. Hand stitch the opening shut.
10. Repeat steps 1 through 9 for the other cushion.

Cut two 13"x 17"pieces of fabric.
