Roughly mark foam, then secure down with tape or spray adhesive so that you can secure with batting.

Place batting on top and secure with a staple in each end, pull taught but not too tight. We want the foam to keep its shape. Cut off excess.

Iron fabric and place on foam/batting. Secure with staples alternating sides. Carefully attach the edges around the curve to ensure there is no bunching
