Do you have an older sailboat with worn, faded, and stained seat cushions? Did you recently buy a used sailboat and it doesn’t have a mainsail cover or winch covers? Do you want more storage options on your sailboat for maximum cruising enjoyment? Are you refitting a sailboat and you’d like to outfit it with functional canvas accessories for a fresh look? Do you like to save money?
There are books and videos that can teach you how to sew clothes and home furnishings. There are sailboat restoration books that have one or two canvas projects in them. If you own a daysailer or weekend cruiser and you want to learn the skills to make your own canvas accessories, those aren’t the books for you.
All the Most Popular Canvas Projects in One Place
I’m happy to announce that my latest ebook Do-It-Yourself Small Sailboat Canvaswork is available for purchase starting today. If you like the canvas projects that you’ve read about on The $tingy Sailor for years, then this is the ebook you want. I’ve compiled 9 of the projects together and organized them in one place.
- Lifeline cushions or tiller cover
- Snap-on gear bags
- Cabin and cockpit cushion covers
- Crib board storage bag
- Foredeck sail bag
- Cabin curtains
- Outboard motor cover
- Winch covers
- Mainsail cover
I also include tips on tools and techniques that can help your projects go smoother for better results. And I supplemented many of the projects with my own scale drawings like the one below. Some of the drawings, like those for the cushion covers, are only available in this book.
Sewing canvas isn’t a dark art and it’s not just for the ladies. All the projects in this ebook use simple methods and readily available materials. After making a few of the projects in this book, you’ll be ready to take on more advanced canvas projects like a bimini, winter boat cover, or making your own sails.
