So, are you with me?? This is a bit long . . .
Dacron or 10 oz.+ batting
1" or 2" foam
Electric staple gun
Needle nose pliers
Several sharp razors
French gimp trim or other decorator 1/2" or wider trim
Hot glue gun and glue.
1: Cut your foam to size--I used 2" for a cushy seat. 1" will give you a trimmer, sleeker looking seat.
Note: Dacron is the padding you'll find at your upholstery stores. It's more crush resistant than regular fabric store batting you'd put in a blanket and will hold up longer.
3: Trim your corners of any extra bulk by pinching them and trimming the wedge.
Close up of temp staple.
10: Pull your fabric through the back. Pulling tight and evenly--gripping with your whole hand, not just your fingers--staple your fabric into the crevice. Always work from the center to each edge when stapling. Fold the fabric over at each edge so you have a nice finished corner.
12: Next remove the temporary staple from one side. Since you didn't place your staple tight, these will usually just pull out, but if you have delicate fabric use your pliers. While pulling the fabric BACK and DOWN with your full hand grip, staple the fabric under the edge of the chair.
16: Using your uber sharp razor, trim closely to the staples.
