Re: SKarosser Copy Scratch Home build?????

With the bed area cleared to allow the foam to expand the rest of the camper is now just a storage area with no room to do anything. It had stored the event shelter and 3 sides, a mates tent, 2 sleeping bags, 2 bed rolls, seat cushions, foam box ( to be cool box) and numerous tools. I am not sure wh...

Re: SKarosser Copy Scratch Home build?????

Not wanting to stop build progress I purchased a double foam mattress from Ikea today. https://i.ibb.co/98zbFbY/IMG-0900.jpg I had made an aborted attempt a few months ago only to be confounded by following the yellow arrows around the store to find the mattresses. Once there I found a note saying, ...

Re: SKarosser Copy Scratch Home build?????

Dennis Disaster With what I thought was a secure load on my roof bars I went to the local country park this afternoon to walk the dog. 8-) The return journey was very traumatic to say the least. My 12 mm sterling board was screwed to my aluminium box-section subframe with 8 screws. The sub-frame fi...

Re: SKarosser Copy Scratch Home build?????

The best-laid plans fall apart. The PVC sheet that I want is in Bradford. Quite a trek for me so it should be an early start Friday morning :roll: Friday is always the best day for me because my daughter is off work alternate Fridays so I don't have to worry about the dog. A perfect sheet is £40 but...

Re: SKarosser Copy Scratch Home build?????

Last Sewing post, (well for a while, the suns shining) I managed to finish the second bed curtain. I had to unpick 2 edges and redo as I had missed the target in a couple of places. Both were shortened and hemmed. https://i.ibb.co/5TP8DMW/IMG-0888.jpg Ignore the crap in the bedroom, its become a st...

Re: SKarosser Copy Scratch Home build?????

Just a bit more done. I managed to put the curtain pole on the inside of the bedroom. The intention was to have the end pleats facing inward but it fits better with them outward. I think a few strips of velcro at the outer edges will make it look tidy. I have just got to shorten the curtains and hem...

Re: SKarosser Copy Scratch Home build?????

Zildan, Not really a talent. I am stupid enough to think that if I read the book, or watch it on utube, I can do it. :? A "proper" seamstress or upholsterer would soon see all the faults. So can I but, there are acceptable, unavoidable faults and then the obvious ones like the pattern upside down. A...
