Just stumbled across this. An amazing post. Thanks for sharing. Will deffo give this a go!

What thread did you use? Was it a heavy duty one or just standard type? Many thanks!

Nice work there.One rule of thumb that i can pass on is always where possible bring the 'Shape to the straight'.
Imagine you are sewing up a round bar stool top.You keep the straight border underneath the circle of fabric as you sew....simples.

Dont forget to keep the border under the top panel when you stitch.Its easier.
Also a good idea to put strike marks along the edges as you can see if the next corner is going to fall into place and if sewing a curve too.
I saw on an earlier post that people cant find white piping.PM me for lengths req'd.
Cheers
Simon

Thinking of getting a rock and roll frame and boarding/upholstering it ourselves. Can someone explain how these boards attach to frames once it's upholstered?

Can anyone explain how the upholstered boards are attached to the frame of a typical rock and roll frame? Thinking of getting a full width autobeds frame but boarding and upholstering it ourselves.

ONly just seen this. Might be a stupid question but how do you secure the boards/seat to the frame?

In my camper i've got the boards secured to the frame but all the cushions are loose (it was bought like that)..
