Making a window seat cushion is a simple project if you are handy with a sewing machine. Even it can be a piece of cake for you. To make your own window seat cushions, you just need to prepare the materials and ready to sew. The materials needed are fabric, foam padding and tape measure. When choosing the fabric for the cushion, you need to choose the one with complementary color of your home décor. Also, the fabric should be washable to allow you clean any stains easily.
The amount of fabric needed will depend on the measurement of your seat area. So, you need to measure the seat area first before purchasing the fabric.
