The best way to get nice tight covers on the cushions involves thin plastic bags, and a vacuum cleaner. Make your cushions, insert into a thin plastic bag, like comes from the dry cleaners. Gather up the extra plastic and snug it around the vacuum cleaner hose. Turn the vacuum on. This will suck the extra air out of the cushions. With them now collapsed, and keeping the end twisted down tight to hold them as airless as possible, insert into the cushion covers, tear out as much plastic as you can, and enjoy the completed cushion! An old upholsterer taught me to do this years ago.....
