|Well, it definitely was cheaper. 2" foam from Jo-Ann Fabrics is $40/yard! I got a twin size mattress topper (2") off Amazon for $30! That even leaves me some extra foam for other projects|
This is one of the tutorials I used. I even made the buttons myself! I think because I have a patterned fabric, it's harder to see the buttons creating the tufting. They look great in person, though!
