Dinghy Chaps day 2

Pretty way to end the day yesterday.

This morning I started the actual sewing on the dinghy chaps.

First I cut out all the holes for the handles, etc.

Then I used paper to make patterns for all the reinforcement patches.

And cut out all the patches from Naugahyde that matches our Sunbrella sailcover color. 

Many, many patches!  Two for each opening because I'm making a "sandwich" to attach the patch to the grey Sunbrella material.

And here are some of the patches in place.

And that's it for the day.  I know it doesn't look like much, but that was about 8 hours of work (play)!

  1. ...the reinforcements are really neat and add such character to your chaps...
