Mucho better!  Did you wing it or use a pattern?

Nice! I just got one from a garage sale with no pillows...so I bought some oversized ones at Garden Ridge. I like your idea--very pro!

thanks!

I used a tutorial from Little Blue Boo as a guideline. I used the old cover as a pattern. I have a different style of glider, so the process was a little different. I used batting inside the covers (it was already there so I just reused it), and I wanted to be able to remove them and wash them, so I used a plain thin cotton as the inside, then batting, then outer fabric. The seat cushion has velcro closure in back, and the back cushion had a snap closure on the bottom. The arm rests are slip covers and the foot rest is also slip covered.
