    Replace each of the ties with elastic loops:
    • Make elastic ties 8cm/3.1" long x 4cm/1.5" wide. Place these in the same position as the old ties.
    • Machine sew or hand sew the loops on the cushions in the same place as the old ties.

    Tie the cushions back on the chairs. Reuse the old ties tied around the elastic loops and then tied direct to the chair. When someone sits on the chair, there will be plenty of give in the cushion and it will remain tied to the chair.

Things You'll Need

  • Elastic - enough for two loops per chair, each loop sized 8cm/3.1" long x 4cm/1.5" wide
  • Sewing thread
  • Needle or sewing machine
