The price of brand-new foam at craft stores like JoAnn Fabrics is actually quite expensive. I headed to Goodwill and was able to find this cushion for $1. I transformed it into a fun kitchen seat cushion using fabric from my "fabric scrap box". I had never made a cushion with piping before. Piping adds a nice little touch and isn't difficult to do. Please see the evolution below. Always wash anything you buy from a thrift store thoroughly, with hot water before modifying it.
