Whew, it’s been a busy weekend so far. While the rest of the world is out camping this 4th of July weekend, I’m home sewing and such. I’m enjoying it though. I hope everyone has a happy and safe holiday!
I needed to replace the canvas bunk as the old one looked like it was made from feedsacks that were quilted together and it was starting to come loose in areas.
Here is the outdoor canvas fabric I chose. Although, truthfully the design of the fabric really wasn’t as important as the strength as the canvas bunk will be stored except at night so the only ones that will see it really are us (:
It was a easy sewing project and went pretty quick. It’s just a matter of double stitching the pole openings for strength and also measuring the width. On the fabric I purchased, I doubled it over before making the pole openings so it’s a bit of a tight squeeze but it will work well I think.
Here is the new bunk canvas. I think it turned out pretty nice. With the left over fabric I think I’ll make a matching pillow.
