My Tripp Trapp chairs’ cushions were getting old so I decided it was time to make new ones. And as usual, I thought of all of you who like sewing and may want to make one of those Stokke chair’s cushion; so here I am sharing this free sewing pattern and tutorial to make a Stokke Tripp Trapp chair cushion.
Here are the materials needed to make a Stokke Tripp Trapp chair cushion:
- Half meter of fabric (you can use 2 different fabrics if you want your cushion to be reversible like the one I am showing you in this sewing tutorial)
- This free sewing pattern, click here and download it as PDF.
Download and print the 2 pages with the free pattern. Tape them together on the 1 cm line allowance, matching the number 1. Please note that you’ll have to add a 1cm seam allowance to the fabric before cutting the pieces.
Once you have cut the pieces as stated on the pattern, you should have the following pieces: 2 main ones cut in fabric (you can use 2 different fabrics to make a reversible Stokke Tripp Trapp chair’s cushion), the same piece cut in batting to make it comfortable, and the top and bottom back pieces to attach the cushion to the Stokke Tripp Trapp chair.
Start sewing the hem on the straps pieces. Fold 0,5cm in twice and top-stitch from the right side, just on the bottom side of both pieces. This is how they should look like from the wrong side once the hem sewn.
Right sides together, pin them to one of the main cushion pieces.
Now, place the other main cushion piece on top of that. Right sides facing.
Stitch all the layers at 1 cm from the edge, leaving a gap on one side (the gap should be smaller than the space left in between the 2 straps.
Now, turn the right sides out through that hole you left in the previous step.
Turn the seam allowances of the gap inside, and top-stitch from the outside (you can also use a blind hand stitch if you are not a big fan of top stitching).
Top stitch all the layers together to keep the batting in place, in the place the pattern states.
Make a (4,5 cm) button hole where the pattern states. Open the button holes with the seam ripper, you can use this tip I explain here.
Your handmade Stokke Tripp Trapp cushion is done!! Here is how it looks from both sides.
