    Outstanding! I think this is something we could tackle in the off season. I pulled all my own skins last time and took them to a very reasonably priced pro. Might take a stab at doing it myself next time. I have about 3 pieces that could be replaced already.

    You can buy cheaper materials and sell the machine when done to keep the costs down.

    That is a GREAT write-up. Only thing that I can't buy is the patience!

    Sometimes there's just not enough beer...


    I may attempt to make a new cushion for behind my driver seat at some point in the future and I'll definitely be looking back on this when the time comes.
    Old enough to know better, young enough to do it anyway.

    What machine would you recommend? I saw one the other day at a fabric store for about $150 that looked pretty heavy duty. We are redoing our poolside lounge chairs now and the little Singer is barely handling it.

    Never even thought about the needle. It's not a HD machine though. It's a wimpy one.
