New Tractor Seat

This is a new seat cushion for my Step-Dad's tractor.  Because the cushion was torn and rotting away, I had to start by buying a new piece of foam.  Jo Ann Fabric had 5 inch thick foam that worked great.  Here's a tip I learned: use an electric knife to cut the foam to the correct dimensions.  I used a tan upholstery fabric to sew the cover (I can't remember exactly what it's called).  Below is a picture of the backrest with 2 inch foam. 


Because I didn't have the plywood backing, I left 3 inches of fabric that can be pulled tight and stapled with a staple gun to the plywood board.
