The Sailrite Fabric Calculator

"The 30 Minute Cushion"

Unit of Measurement inches cm
A. Finished Width (?)
Width of finished cushion. Foam should be oversized -- 1% (1/2 inch (1.3 cm) minimum) larger than the finished size on width and length.
B. Finished Length/Zipper (?)
Length of the finished cushion. Cut foam oversized -- 1% (1/2 inch (1.3 cm) minimum) larger than the finished cushion on width and length. This length edge is where the zipper opening will be installed. If you want the zipper opening to be on the width side of the cushion, simply switch your entry measurements from length to width and width to length.
C. Thickness (?)
Thickness of cushion foam. If less than 2 inches (5.1 cm) we recommend using the fold over cushion construction calculator and production process.
Quantity (?)
Total number of cushions needed with these dimensions.
Fabric Width (?)
Actual width of fabric (often 46, 54, or 60 inches -- 116.8, 137.2, and 152.4 cm)
Orientation--Cushion length on fabric: (?)
Use this to position the cushion lengthwise or widthwise on the fabric. Often used to orient a pattern, like stripes, a certain direction on the fabric or to keep from seaming sections of fabric together for an extra-long length of cushion. If two fabric panels need to be sewn together side by side, required for extra-large cushions, switching the orientation will move the seam from across the cushion to the front boxing of the cushion, as seen in Panel Rendition image. Placing the seam in the middle of the front boxing (from center notch to center notch) results in the most desirable looking cushion.
Length Width
Too Thin for this Construction Process: The thickness specified will make accurate assembly using this procedure difficult. We recommend using the "Fold Over" calculator and its procedure for thin cushions.
