Save money by creating your own designer-look seat covers. Bring your own piece of foam* for your project (bench seat, lounge chair, sofa, etc) and learn the professional techniques to make a zippered seat cover, with or without piping.

In this workshop we’ll discuss various techniques and materials required for covering a foam seat cushion and talk about the best option for your project. You’ll go home with set of notes including Julie’s “formula” for calculating how to measure and cut your fabric for future seat cushion projects as well as new found confidence!!

Instructor: Julie

Time: 4 hours

Cost: $89.00


  • *Foam: If you are having a piece of foam cut for your project and are unsure about sizing (foam should always be cut a little bigger than the final size you require), please email Julie.

  • Zipper: Upholstery zips can be purchased from Ministry of Handmade on the day of the workshop.
