Hi, I recently just bought the frame for a chair like this: http://i11.ebayimg.com/03/i/07/88/33/a3_1.JPG
and I need to make a cushion to go on it. I thought I saw a pattern for one a long time ago, but I can't seem to find it anymore. Any tips would be very helpful, thank you!

I covered a one of these years ago by simply laying down the cushion, tracing it's shape, cutting, and sewing as is. I didn't make it removable, so I went ahead and tufted the fabric where it is tufted on the original. Looks great and was super super easy.

Since you don't have the cushion, I would suggest measuring one from a store, sewing, and PACKING it with both quilter's batting and polyfil. (That way you get better shape, and you don't get empty-spots which are inevitable when using just polyfil.) You can then tuft it if you'd like.
