DIY Box Cushion Cover Tutorials

DIY Box Cushion Cover Resources

Hello DIY slipcover makers!  Today I want to share a few good resources for making your own box cushion covers.

I know the thought of measuring, cutting and assembling all of those pieces — top, bottom, boxing panel, welt cord and, ugh, the dreaded zipper panel — stops you in your tracks.

When I made my first boxed cover I felt like it took FOREVER. The corners didn’t line up, boxing pulled and seams puckered. But after following a good tutorial and making just one cover I got the hang of it.

Below are my favorite cushion cover video tutorials.

If you’re a visual learner like me I think you will find these super helpful.  Practice a bit and have fun! You will be whipping out good fitting covers in no time.

Sailrite’s video tutorial demonstrates how to use existing cushion covers as a pattern to make new covers.  It walks you through how-to measure, cut and sew a cover for a T-shape box cushion and a partial box back cushion with cording and zipper opening.  Their professional instruction also includes tips for trimming a foam insert, matching a print and adding stuffing to a back cushion.

Follow Peg Baker’s video series for creating a basic box cushion with welt cord and a zipper. If you are a beginner sewer and new to to making a cushion cover I think you will appreciate her easy to follow step-by-step tutorials broken down into 10 videos.

Kim’s Upholstery tutorial is a short video showing how she assembles the pieces for a box cushion. Her speedy method is commonly used in professional workrooms. Great for you advanced sewers who can manage the short cuts.
