A small outdoor
scatter cushion is around 43cm. A medium is 50cm and a large is
63cm. To measure an existing scatter cushion cover, take the
insert out and lie the cover flat. Measure from seam to seam.
If you can't remove the infill, then let the tape measure drape over the
cushion. Remember a scatter cushion cover will be around 5-10cm
smaller when filled.

A boxed cushion has
a side wall and will generally be used for seating. Foam is
available in 5cm, 7.5cm, 10cm and up to 25cm. Just as a general rule, a
daybed will be 10cm, a single chair cushion will be 10 - 12cm, and a
bench seat will be 5 - 7.5cm.

For bench seats and
small cushions, we may suggest you have your cover made in a "wrap"
style. This just means the fabric wraps over the front of the
cushion without a seam. It's more cost effective and uses less
fabric than a boxed cushion.
TO PIPE OR NOT TO
Piping is an
individual choice. It suits more formal styles of cushion covers
and is very effective if done in a contrast colour.
