The Captain's chair on this boat is exposed to the elements and needs something to cover it....
I had bought this outdoor furniture cover at Walmart on a ridiculous clearance price of $5 many years ago. I knew that the huge amount of fabric was worth a lot more than that and knew I would someday have a use for it. So it's been in a closet waiting for just the right project! You have that kind of stuff, don't you?
I cut it apart into large strips. And here began the fittin process.
My workstation in the cockpit! I bought a spool of heavy duty thread to make it more durable.
I made a large hem thinking I'd put in a drawstring. I pulled a "pilot string" thru - but found that the "rubbery" inside of the fabric made it too tough to pull a drawstring properly.
So, I decided to sew in some cordage just to make ties.
And in case you guys think Duane is eating bonbons while I'm working.....he's doing some wonderful new plumbing!
