Lehua Kyllikki. Bench. July 10th , 2017.
To make it easy, you can lay the cushion half (bottom) with right side up on a plain surface and cover it with the face up sleeve. Thereafter, put the remaining cushion half on its top with face down. It is necessary that the seam that is opposite to the sleeve piece must not be sewn. It is done to leave space for accessing the quilt batting. After, it is turned right side out; whole cushion is stacked inside it. Place the padding evenly and whipstitch your glider rocker cushion. Now, two 1.5-yard pieces are formed out of 1" ribbon. These two pieces must be folded in half. Attach them to the edge of your cushion at the fold. After the pads are created, tie all the four strands to the pipe at the bottom of the seat. Thus, your custom bench cushions are ready.
The finish, as you can see from the photos, is as close to looking like wood as you can get without actually being wood. GRC is used in a number of intricate architectural applications for exactly this reason.
In order to custom make your own bench cushions, you need four yards of upholstery material of 60 inch width, 3 yards of matching ribbon of 1 inch width, approximately 10 yards of standard quilt batting, some heavy-duty thread and a pound of polyester fiberfill. The first thing you should do is find the appropriate size of your material by referring to the cutting pattern. Trim out the front and back pieces and also a sleeve piece of 13/1.5" X48". After that, pin all the pieces together and stitch them. For a sleeve, you need to form an inch wide, double turned hem by the side of the longer edge.
GRC stands for Glass Reinforced Concrete and in modern markets it is used to make all sorts of structures for use in a variety of applications including garden benches.
