They're done. Really.

I decided to make arm rests for the settees today. The boat originally had the end pieces on it that were the same height as the backs, something of which I have never been a fan. I wanted real arm rests that were arm height to rest your elbow on while reading a book, or to lay your head on when stretching out on the settee. I did snap them to the walls like the backs just to keep them in place underway, but otherwise they are movable. Honest. I'm really done with them this time.

Very nice. Great job!

Thanks! The headrests have been tested for full-length resting on the settee and have passed with flying colors. said...

Beautiful job! They look very comfy, too.

Did you have prior experience sewing? I have been thinking about taking it up for canvas with a sailrite machine but have absolutely no experiance. Your stuff all looks so professional.

I've been sewing for over 40 years. If you have no experience I would suggest starting with something simple and finding someone around you with experience to help you a little. Sailrite has a ton of fantastic video tutorials but they do assume you have some prior knowledge of basic sewing skills.

I suspected you weren't new at this. Your cushions and canvas look professional. Should be a great way to make some money along the way.
