Positioning the Templates on the Fabric

The next step is figuring out the best way to use the fabric.  We don't want to waste fabric.

We put all our cushion templates on the fabric and arranged them to use the minimum amount of fabric.

This fabric, btw, is the bottom cushion fabric that is breathable and lets any moisture out.  Nobody will see the bottom of the cushions.  It is a cheaper fabric, also.  It is called "Cushion Underlining" and is under $7.00 a yard.

This is pretty straight-forward watching the video.

I should also point out that we learned a lot by examining how the old cushions had been made.  The old cushions used underlining.  By using the old cushion covers as "guides" and "suggestions," we avoided many mistakes.
