Best answer: How do you sew a zip into a cushion?

What size zip do I need for a cushion?

2. Zip – the zip should be the same length as the bottom edge of the cushion (as the zip goes into the bottom of the cushion). Example: If the “finished” cushion size is a square 45x45cm your zip should be 45cm. If your cushion was 45cm length x 35cm wide the zip would be 45cm.

What size zipper do I need for a 20 inch pillow?

For example, I use a 18” zipper for a 20” pillow insert and a 22” zipper for a 24” pillow insert, etc. and I always sew my covers 1 inch smaller than the insert (the seams for a 20” pillow insert are actually 19” for the pillow cover) so a zipper that is two inches smaller than the size of the insert works best.
