Cabin cushion re-cover

Interiors & Upholstery | March 1, 2011 | By:


Project: Fabric re-cover of cabin V-berth. The customer wanted some color in the small cabin. I used a sunburst pattern to give the appearance of the space being larger than it really is. The bolsters had sew foam applied to the fabric, and were top-stitched to create a quilted look. The plastic pattern has arrows indicating the direction the panels had to be cut to keep the pattern even as it went around the bow of the cabin.

Materials: 100-percent acrylic fabric from the Encore Collection by Outdura (pattern: Trellis, color: Sailor), sew foam, original foam.


Fabricator: Carol Racine

Shop: Racine Design, Jacksonville, Fla.
