Finished sewing new dinette cushions
« on: May 29, 2017, 10:21:06 PM »
I didn't get back to sewing these dinette cushions until this year. I was kind of dreading the project. I did cut most of the fabric pieces last year. I put vinyl on the top and brown water repellant fabric on the bottom.
A wood kick plate will cover the mechanics.
Recap: we pulled out the old curved booth dinette, and built an L shape bench. Still using the table, but may swap the top of that for a rectangle.
The shape has been working good for us.

Great job! I just finished mine as well and now I won't let anybody sit on them. Even myself. I don't want them to get dirty!

@wegocampin no way. I don't even want to sew backs, I like the pillows! I can see why my aunt stapled material over foam to plywood!
@katammers I bought my vinyl at a fabric warehouse in the minneapolis area, SR Harris. Sid's advice was to use it! LOL It was about half the price of retail. I put water repellant material on the bottom, which I waited forever for fabric.com to put on sale. It's slightly scratchy, so I'm glad it's the bottom.
I don't want anyone to ruin them either, but I'm going to be cautiously optimistic. The vinyl will repel water from wet swimsuits, I just hope the chlorine doesn't do a number. I guess that's camping life. :)

I think I got my brown zipper from wawak. I realized this after I sewed one, and the leftover wasn't long enough for the second cushion. I ended up at joann's, and could only get black or white. Thankfully the fabric covers it.

Lol... okay, fine. I guess I'll do my own.  :P My thought is to do a type of pillowcase cover. Easy to take off and wash.  ;)

I did consider that, but I knew I wanted to use vinyl. I think it would work great if you used fabric.
