Did you cut your cushion front as an 18″ square or 18″ plus seam allowances?

We cut it to 18″. This means the cover is slightly smaller than the cushion pad to the pad it fuller inside the cushion pad. Hope that helps.

I really enjoyed watching all the lessons first. Good clear explanations. I have made my first envelope cushion I found a pad at home 10 “ but my finished cushion ( only a practice) has ended up 8” and the pad wont squeeze in.
