My daughter’s bedroom has this great, but high, window seat. Even though the window area is way too high for a normal seat, my daughter still wants to use it as a window seat and homework area. To make it more comfortable, I made her this pretty and oh so easy fabric covered cushion.

It is almost like the original homeowners had planned a window seat for their son’s bedroom, but in the end installed standard sized cabinets in the nook instead making the height just way too high for a seat.
Unless you have a stool to climb up there of course which is what my daughter plans to do. The area is very wide and comfy and she would also love to snuggle with her little dog and take naps in this space.
I have considered having a custom cushion made for the window, but never really liked the prices that go along with the project. I decided like most DIY moms that I could make my own in less time and much less money.
So I purchased the foam for the project and the fabric and then let it sit around – for weeks – just never getting around to it. Sound familiar?
Easy Fabric Covered Cushion
- Sharp Utility Knife or blade
- Sharpie Marker
- 4″ Foam cushion
- Painter’s Tape
- Spray Adhesive
- Fabric of your choice
First I made a quick pattern for the seat cushion size using newspaper and painters tape. This method was much easier and efficient than using a ruler or tape measure. This way I had the exact size and template for the cuts needed.
