Maybe I will be asked to share again in the future. nudge nudge wink wink
|I know, my face is really flushed, but it is a good flushed.|
Retired Hub and I have been working on a project the past little while. We are repairing a set of four 25 year old outdoor chairs. Knitty Sister bought this set brand new and when she downsized from her house to a condo we ended up taking possesssion. As you can see, the frames are PVC and have withstood the use just fine but the blue vinyl support of each chair has been destroyed beyond help, so we made new ones. It's hard to see but they are disintegrating at the top edge. They just weren't safe to sit in anymore. We replaced the blue mesh vinyl with a white, more tightly woven vinyl mesh. Bought the entire lot of new vinyl for next to nothing at the end of last year. RetiredHub did all the measuring and cutting and then helped me with the sewing. I used my 20 year old Kenmore and had very little trouble sewing through such thick layers of plastic. I used a Superior 100/16 Titanium Topstitch needle and Wonderfil 50# Konfetti cotton. Sure did the job! We should be able to get a few more years of use.
