    This material is awesome...



    A little sample for you to see with a ruler for texture size. The stuff is great. It's 90% wool and 10% nylon. The material came with a certificate of compliance with FAA standars for flame retardancy. And it is. It won't light no matter what. Sure does stink though!

    I cut patterns this morning and about the time I finished, the material showed up. I double checked everything, and set about cutting the material out.
    Now I have to beg or borrow my sister's sewing machine.

    Seat cushion is finished. There is a little error over on the left thigh support that can be seen in the photo. I believe that I can sew this down where it's not noticeable. I don't think I turned the corner correctly on the machine.

    Working on the seat back maybe tomorrow. I don't have a lot of time this weekend to work on it.

    Looks great. Doing a fab job. Just a suggestion, when you do your repair to the left also sew a small handle out of the fabric where the centre of the control column cutout is and pass your seatbelt under it. That will stop the seatbelt falling to the floor everytime you undo it.

    You know I forgot all about that hole for the belt.

    I knew it was there and didn't even think about it this morning.
