Even though I was pondering fancy “egg” chairs, I ended up buying some mod IKEA chairs for the patio. The IKEA chair pads made me sad (too thin and too beige) so I made my own:

Joann had outdoor foam in a 15×17 inch size so I didn’t even have to cut it. I used an outdoor jacquard that was on sale from there, continuous zipper coil from Wawak, and the Sailrite tutorial I used for the chaise slipcover.

It took me three weeks or so to get around to making these, but the actual sewing time was under an hour. And now we can sit more comfortably and watch the slowpocalypse from the deck!
