Wheelchair seat cushion – You can make seat cushions for your wheelchair that will make them much more comfortable. These cushions fit any style of decoration and are removable to make wheelchair seat cushion easier when not in use. All materials are available at your local web store. Measure the length and width of the wheelchair seat. Cut a piece of decorative fabric that matches the width of the seat plus 2 inches and is twice the length over 3 inches. For example, if the seat measures 12 by 12 inches, the fabric should measure 27-by-14 inches. The additional fabric will allow seams and the thickness of the pad.
Fold the fabric in half with the face inwards, making it slightly larger than the size of the wheelchair seat cushion. Stitching seams along the right and left edges to join the fabric together. This closes three sides of the mattress when the folded edge is included. Cut four 12-inch pieces of decorative cord that complements the cloth cushion. Sew the ends of two wires to each corner next to the open side, which extends away from the pad.
Turn the right side wheelchair seat cushion out which resembles a bag with four threads that extend from the open end. Cut a piece of 1-inch upholstery foam to match the size of the chair seat. Slip this foam into the cloth cushion. Close the open edge of the fabric over the foam, holding the seam with pins. The edges of the fabric should be tucked inside the cushion.
