SKU: X-HT-300674



This oversized floor cushion is an easy DIY project that will add a cool, boho vibe to your room. It's a fun seating option for your living room, bedroom, dorm and more. Made with Crypton® upholstery fabric, this floor cushion will liven up your living space. And don't worry — this is an easy, beginner DIY. So even if you've never sewn before, you'll be able to follow along with our video tutorial and make a beautiful oversized floor cushion. Let's get started!

For our floor cushion, we’re using indoor upholstery fabric from Crypton Home Fabrics. Crypton fabrics are known for their durability while remaining incredibly soft and luxurious. Designed with proprietary stain- and odor-resistant technology, Crypton fabrics can handle anything you throw at them. Kids, pets, spills — nothing is too messy for Crypton. We like Crypton because it’s a dependable, worry-free fabric that can keep up with an active lifestyle. And with hundreds of fabrics on the Sailrite® website in a range of colors, textures and designs, there’s a Crypton fabric for you!

We've made it fun and easy for you to DIY your own oversized floor cushion. A free downloadable pattern includes all the necessary measurements and cutting information. You can find that downloadable PDF below the video at the end of this blog. Once you have all your supplies on hand, you'll have a brand-new, custom-made giant floor cushion in just a couple of hours.

The finished size of our oversized floor cushion is 30 inches by 30 inches with a height of 6 inches. The five upholstery buttons installed on each side of the cushion help to condense the foam and create a very full, cushioned seat. Plus, the tufted look of the buttons add to the cushion's high-end look and classic style. No one will believe you made it yourself!
