    Using polyurethene foam for cushions

    OK, so I got a deal on 6 seat cushion-sized squares of polyurethene foam. My brand new (to me) farmhouse has 2 big window seats that I'd like to sew custom-fit cushions for. Query: how should I attach the foam squares together? It will take 2 or 3 to fill each window seat. Is there some kind of glue or should I sew them together or just squish them together inside the cover I sew? Does my question even make sense? :)
    Any advice would be awesome! I checked thistothat.com but no luck there.

    You might want to sew them together, big loopy stitches. The problem with glue is that it will have a different texture than the foam, and probably will be detected by anyone sitting on the cushions. Plus some glues will fuse the foam.

    They make foam glue in aerosal cans. The stuff works great for glueing fabric together. You will notice a join, but that'll go away when you wrap the foam in some polyester batting (the white stuff sold in rolls). It'll make the cushions softer and last longer.

    Thanks for the good ideas. Wrapping in batting is definitely something I hadn't thought of, and that should cover a multitude of sins :) haha. As for the aerosol cans of foam glue, that just sounds so toxic... is that safe?
