Patterns for custom cushions made by customers

 

To create custom pattern, please use our template kit which includes: light colored fabric pieces and black marker. We find fabric is more functional then paper: flexibility of fabric and using a marker to reflect curves and shapes makes building the pattern process easier and more accurate. When your pattern is ready and cut, try it on the furniture to ensure that the pattern fits and your measurements are correct.

If a zipper is needed, please write the word “Zipper” on the desired side. If ties are required, place an arrow. Also, write “Top” and “Bottom” on two sides of the pattern. We require your name with phone number or email, so we can notify you that we received your pattern we are ready to send the order to production.

If you are replacing existing cushions, place them on paper of fabric on a table/floor to draw the pattern. If you ordering cushions for the furniture that does not have cushions, please use paper or light colored fabric to make patterns to capture curves and edges. Make sure to cover the whole area with paper or fabric to ensure correct measurement (fabric is more user-friendly, from our experience). Use pen or marker to draw the pattern and cut it.

Dry Fast foam for outdoor replacement cushions.

What is dry fast and do I really need it?

Dry fast – foam with large cells, perfect for outdoor and boat cushions. This foam dries out in minutes when in contact with water. You do not have to worry if you find patio cushions in a pool – they dry out within 1 hour!

Dry fast foam is made in USA, meets flammability requirements, and is mold resistant and long lasting life for 8 years.

Styles to consider for Replacement Cushions.

Replacing patio cushions is a great home improvement project: you select color of the fabric, density and type of the foam, cushion style etc.

Sunbrella fabrics have great patterns and colors to chose from but what about the style?

Double or single welting is inexpensive addition that makes your cushions look even better!

Law Label

Law label is a MUST for all cushion manufacturers in USA.

 Can I request not to attach labels to my cushion set?

 Law label is part of the compliance. It just has to be attached to each cushion and pillow. When manufacturers skip stay dry liner to cover inserts, they have no choice but attach labels to the slip covers. But It doesn’t look sharp and you have to remove labels with caution in order not to cut fubrics.

If liner is used to cover inserts, label is attached to the liner – not visible at all!

You have to remove slip covers to find labels.

When replacing cushions, do I need to add inches to my insert for a premium look?

No, you don’t need additional inches to get a full luxury look.

Buy your cushions with Dacron wrapped foam to extend cushion life, it adds an additional inch all the way around and gives a sharp premium look to your cushion set.

Next step is to cover the cushion with a stay dry liner – it’s used for boat cushions to avoid deep moisture penetration.

                                                         great example is on our website.

Is there a way to prevent errors in measurements?

 
Yes, absolutely!

Take photos of your furniture with the measuring tape on it
 
Later, going through the ordering process, no need to go back and measure again to ensure everything is accurate.
 
This is a bullet proof method, especially when you need to measure more then one piece of furniture.

How to get the measurements right.

 

It is important to get it right the first time:

Using a flexible measuring tape (those grade school rulers are a bit unwieldy) you can measure either your current cushion or the furniture where the cushion will used.

Measure the total distance to the nearest 1/8th of an inch.The measurements we need are shown on the image on this page (usually length, width, and thickness).
We welcome any questions you have about taking measurements, and will gladly respond to your emails, with or without photos, to help you to stay on the right track.

Residents of Phoenix Metropolitan Area, are offered FREE measurement and delivery service upon request.
