Step 7: Seat Cushion

Picture of Seat Cushion

My mom made a padded seat for the rat mower from some new fabric and old pillows and sleeping pad foam.

I made a template for her with heavy paper, and we discussed material/print options. She chose some outdoor upholstery material. She sewed it in a couple stages so I could test fit the seat without bringing the mower to her. There are some Neodymium magnets from Amazon taped to the inside of the cushion. They work surprisingly well to keep the seat in place.
