But with a little time and patience, even an amateur sewer may create a round cushion for use as a chair seat, covered bar stool or pillow. Make pillows in a variety of sizes for an inexpensive way to decorate a home.
First step to make round patio chair cushions is Draw two, 12 and a half inches in diameter circles on back of fabric chosen using chalk fabric and a drawing compass. Cut out two circles with a pair of scissors. Pin any desired motif – like a ribbon, beaded necklace or a string – around circumference of one or both of circles and sew in place.
Sew two short ends of rectangle piece together using a seam allowance of an average single inch. Pin top quarter of an inch rectangle border around circumference of 12 and a half-inch circle, facing right sides together. Sew rectangle to circle. This will cause top of cushion.

And Fill cushion with polyester fill. Fill mattress as complete as possible to make a rigid mattress. Fold raw edges of hole inside mattress and hand sew opening closed round patio chair cushions.
