Finished Seat Upholstery

Postby thiggy » Fri Feb 01, 2013 10:35 pm

Boy, this was a bear!! The material pulled a little tighter than I prefer as I tucked it into the lip of the seat pan, but I imagine that it may streach a little as it is sat upon.


Since retirement, the things I miss most are the holidays!

I like it.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.
