Making a Bull Nosed Cushion Fastened to Back Board

Item # X-HT-200371

Bull-nose cushions which are fastened to a back board are a style of cushion often used for seating on pontoon boats, power boats, and sailboats where the outer end of the cushion (by the knees when seated) is raised higher than the seat. This bull-nose style is created by anchoring a strip of fabric between two sections of foam to form a tight fitting transition between two, oftentimes different, heights of foam.

This video demonstrates how to pattern using the old foam, create and attach a fabric anchoring strip, sew a semi-flat felled seam, sew piping/welting, attach boxing, and staple the cover over old foam.
