hey everyone welcome back to measure mix today I'm so excited because I got this stuff to make my outdoor cushions for my outdoor couch so stick around alright guys so I needed my cushions to be budget-friendly and cost-effective so I started looking online and anything that I found for already-made outdoor seat cushions that I wanted were going to be at least a hundred and twenty dollars for three sets of cushions and back cushions for my couch and I was really trying to lower that cost and make it about half of that so I have spent probably about seventy to eighty dollars for all the supplies that I need for these cushions so that makes my total for of my couch and for the cushions to be roughly around a hundred and fifty dollars so I thought that was a lot better because I didn't want to make something that I sort of just went out and purchased from the store already made already put together for two three hundred dollars if I wanted it to be something that was really budget friendly and cost-effective so this is what I came up with for the outdoor cushions alright so for the supplies I chose these 28 by 28 euro pillows and I have sprayed them with the rust-oleum NeverWet I already had two of them in my closet so I actually only had to purchase one of them so I did get this off of Amazon it was I believe it was 16 or 17 dollars for just this one pillow now that wouldn't have been cost effective if I would have needed three of them so I did look on walmart.com and they have euro pillows 26 by 26 euro pillows for seven or eight dollars apiece so if I needed all three of them that still would have been cost-effective for me to get three pillows rather than buying already made outdoor cushions so that's for the back pillows to cover them I am going to use this drop cloth here which I got from Amazon and this I believe is a six by nine foot and it was about nine dollars and I got two of them one to make the top pill the back pillows and one to make the bottom cushion and then to fuse all of this together I got new six thousand Fabri fuse and I've never used it before but it's supposed to be pretty strong and hopefully it will be strong enough to use this together to make some pillow cases basically I also have this unique stitch which I just found in the drawer in case I didn't have enough six thousand and then I also have this stitch witchery which is just fusible tape that you do with the iron and that will be I'll use that for my hemming and then I will glue everything together then I have my scissors and my rulers and my cutter and that is it so I am ready to get started so I started off by cutting six pieces of the drop cloth at 30 inches by 30 inches and I did that so that I would have a couple inch overhang so that I could him the seams together with the e6000 glue and that is what I'm doing here I'm quoting one piece of fabric up and then I have another piece of fabric underneath that I am using the e6000 on and I'm just folding it back together and I took pins to hold it in place after it was glued down because the e6000 takes about eight hours for it to completely dry and then I did that to all three sides of the pillowcase and I left one side open and then I also did that to each pillowcase and I had three pillowcases in total alright guys so now I'm ready to cover the seat and for the seat I bought convoluted bed path and they are 33 inches by 76 inches by I believe two inches two inches thick so I bought two of these to stack on top of each other so that I will have four inch thick cushions now the length is perfect my couch is 72 inches so that's perfect the width though is about 29 inches so I'm going to need to cut a few inches off of the width on each of these to make them 29 inches so for my seat cushions I started off by trimming both the mattress pads to 29 inches in width with my scissors and then I used my drop cloth which was 6 by 9 which fit perfectly for both these mattress pads and I just folded the drop cloth over top of it and then I started using my hem tape and my iron and I folded up the drop cloth and started hemming it to the mattress pad now this is an unconventional method so you want to make sure that you do not burn yourself you're being careful with the iron and also you are not burning through the mattress pad or the claw but it did work out and it's used the two pieces together really well this is the side here which was a little bit more difficult to work with it was just a lot of folding and unfolding some pieces off but I tried to just kind of wrap it like a present and then use the hem tape to fold it up and fuse it together the last side the long side was the easiest to fuse together I just used the hem tape in my iron and I fused the drop cloth to the mattress pad so the next day after the glue was dry I took the pins out and flipped the be pillowcases right-side in and then I took my hem tape and I hemmed the opening so that way I would have clean edges and I put my pillow inside the pillowcase and then I just fused the two pieces of drop cloth together so that way my pillow would be held inside the pillowcase all right guys I really love how my outdoor cushions turned out they were a lot of work and a lot of trial and error but I think they turned out really good and they are super comfy to sit on so I know we'll be spending a lot of time out here all summer long on this comfy couch so if you guys liked this video please give me a thumbs up and if you're new to my channel hit that subscribe button down

    It looks very nice but honestly it would be easier to sew them with a sewing machine. You can get one used at a thrift store that does basic straight stich and zig zag and thats all you need for simple projects.

    I wonder how these held up a year later? I'm about to do something similar and I'm wondering if I should sew or use a no see method.

    Exactly what I plan on doing with my storage bench! People always come over and sit on it and it's not comfy for them lol. I hadn't heard of the E6000 fabric glue, do you recommend it over the tape? Looks fantastic!!

    Another great project! I wouldn't have thought of using the mattress pads. Genius! I also like how the drop cloth will tie in with your drop cloth rug and you can add color with throw pillows. Nicely done! πŸ™‚
