Jedi Master Star Wars Seat Cushion

Watch and learn how to make a seat cushion fit for a Jedi Master. For major star war fans (and fans of comfortable seating) follow this helpful tutorial and learn how to make a chair cushion. It's both funny and comfy! Maureen Wilson is featured in the video tutorial found at the bottom of this page.

Jedi Master Star Wars Seat Cushion

Materials:

  • Fabric
  • Velcro
  • Felt
  • Temporary fabric glue
  • Foam cushion
  • Sewing machine & iron
  • Needle & thread


Instructions:

  1. My husband asked for a seat cushion for the chair he uses at work. He’s a big Star Wars fan, so I decided to surprise him with a themed cushion. I started by finding a free Star Wars font online. This font is called Star Jedi Logo.
     
  2. I just cut out my letters freehand, but you could also print them off and pin them to your fabric, then cut around them.
     
  3. You’ll need to cut two fabric squares for your cushion. Cut them 1 inch wider than the seat of your chair.
     
  4. Use temporary fabric glue to adhere the letters to one of the fabric squares. This will hold them in place while you sew.
     
  5. Topstitch the letters to the fabric square. Use a 1/8 inch seam. Don’t forget to sew around the center of letters that have cut-outs.
     
  6. Next we’ll make the straps that will secure the cushion. You’ll need a total of 4 pieces, but you can fold your fabric and cut them all out at once if you want. Make them 3.5 inches wide. Measure beneath your chair from side to side, then divide by two. Add four inches, and cut each rectangle to that length.
     
  7. Sew two rectangles right sides together with a 1/4 inch seam, leaving one short end open for turning. Do the same with the other set of rectangles.
     
  8. Trim the corners without clipping your stitches, then turn right side out and press.
     
  9. Lay the square with the letters face-up on the table. Pin the straps to the center, one on each side, with the raw edge pointing outward. Extend the strap about an inch past the edge of the square so it will be secure within the seam.
     
  10. Lay the other fabric piece face-down on top, sandwiching the straps between the layers. Pin together, then sew with a 1/4 inch seam. Leave a 6-inch hole in one of the sides so we can insert the cushion.
     
  11. Clip the corners, then turn right side out. Press the edges, being careful not to iron the felt letters.
     
  12. Next add Velcro to each strap. One should have the Velcro on the top of the strap, while the other has the coordinating Velcro on the bottom of the strap.
     
  13. Then cut a 1-inch thick foam cushion to the size of your sewn square. Roll up the foam so it fits inside the opening. Insert your hand to position the foam in place. Make sure it’s smooth.
     
  14. Finally, hand sew the opening shut with a blind or ladder stitch.

I need this cushion in my life. I will take it everywhere I go, and I will always sit on it. Because every chair I sit in is the chair of a Jedi Master. Also this cushion is so cute.

I totally agree. It is the definition of perfection. You should totally make it (and include a photo when you do)!
