Cushions. Saturday , November 04th , 2017 - 08:53:54 AM
For indoor and outdoor chairs, TheRockingChairCompany.com has a fantastic selection. Ranging from just tie-on chair bottoms, to standard cushions, to cushion sets. They have floral and striped fabric patterns, as well as some more sedated neutral colors good for everything from cedar rocking chairs to white wicker rocking chairs. Their cheapest single seat cushion runs about $25, the cushions with backs plus seat roam around in the $40`s and $50`s, and they even supply rocking chair bench cushions for $55-$99. And I notice they offer free shipping for many of their products.
On the second stop the shop was bustling, exciting for a fledgling business, but the owner had plenty of time for me. We found a perfect outdoor fabric in greens, tans, and reds, measured out the yards, found thread and stuffing for pillows and my sewing adventure began. I have sewn off and on over the years so I have experience, but I am not a regular at my machine. Fortunately it is a trusty Singer, a graduation gift 42 years ago, and it runs with glee. I gathered up my old cushions, washed and dried them, shook the stuffing back into every corner, and then set them atop my fabric. I cut one large cover for my favorite rocking chair and fashioned two pillows for my swing (one a cover-over and the other a new creation). After seams were in place I shoved in the old cushions, stitched up the hole left for stuffing, and had sparkling new ones.
The great benefit of chair pads is that as well as adding additional decoration they are also highly functional. Sometimes hard pine kitchen chairs are just not that comfortable, lets face it. The addition of an extra cushion makes all the difference.
