    I need a pattern for a seat cover

    Hi, haven't been here in ages, but I could use your collective wisdom. I want to make a seat cushion, square, 2" deep. I've got the foam and fabric, but I need a good, basic pattern, preferably without a zipper. If you have any pointers, I'd be grateful, thank you!

    Simplicity and McCall's always used to have pillow patterns for sale--or at least instructions for making it to your preferred size.

    You-tube has several good videos for making cushion covers. I looked this up recently to make lawn chair cushions, same as yours, about 2 inches thick and I think about 17 inch square. They show methods that are extremely simple to methods that are more involved and everything in between. There are even some called "no sew" cushion covers.

    I've made them both with and without zippers and I do have to say that the zipper ones were very easy to make and much easier to put the foam cushion in. I did find all the instructions on Pinterest.

    I saw Nancy Zieman (Nancy's Notion) on her show make cushions with no zipper just an overlay of fabric on the bottom.
