How do I add cushion and fabric to wrought iron? Answered

I am upholstering a wrought iron table and chair set. The chairs didn't initially have cushion or fabric on the back. I would like know how can I adhere these materials to these chairs? The fabric on the back of the chair in the photos is just set in the space, it is not bound. Please help.

I apologize that I couldn't get photos to display correctly lol Maybe my question isn't clear. concern is not the seat. I you at the top of the chair, I added some fabric that was not initially apart of the chair. The fabric is not currently mounted. I added the fabric so that you could see what I'm trying to do. I hope that made better sense.

Just the same mount the fabric on a shaped bit of plywood that fits into the space you have. Glue or screw in place.

usually there is a wooden seat screwed or bolted to the frame that carries the upholstery.

All metal chairs I have done so far either had a wooden seat base or at least some wood screwed onto the frame.
Although for your type I might actually go for a seat insert.
You make a wooden base that fits into the frame and rests on top of it.

Maybe I should've said the back of the chair...

It looks like you already did, in an upside down way :-)
