Folded Over (Quick and Easy) Foam Cushions

Unit of Measurement inches cm
A. Finished Width (?)
Width of finished cushion. Foam should be oversized -- 1/2 inch (1.3 cm) larger than the finished size on length and width.
Decimals!
B. Finished Length (?)
Length of the finished cushion. Foam should be oversized -- 1/2 inch (1.3 cm) larger than the finished size on length and width.
Decimals!
C. Thickness (?)
Thickness of cushion foam.
Decimals!
C. Vertical Pattern Repeat (?)
Used to keep pattern alignment when multiple fabric widths or more than one cushion are required. Yardage will be increased to keep vertical patterns aligned.
Quantity (?)
Total number of cushions needed with these dimensions.
Integer!
Fabric Width (?)
Actual width of fabric (often 46, 54, or 60 inches -- 116, 137, and 152 cm)
Numbers!
