    Well I'm finally getting around to it-redoing my cushions. Here is the old fabric in the middle and the new fabric on the outside cushions. The nice semi-solid color I picked up enough to do one side for only $1.50/yd. That was all they had [:(] Nice velvet feel. The plaid is a bit harsher and meant for the bottom side (old cover was vinyl on the bottom) was only $3.00/yd. However, I sort of have a reversible set up now! I can change my decor when the mood hits me!

    So far, only the 4 dinette cushions are done but making quick progress!
    Before I toss them (since they are still usable), I figured I'd offer up my old covers to anyone who could use them. Just pay shipping. The sizes available (all 4" thick):
    21.5" x 44.5" (two)
    15" x 44.5" (two)
    16.5" x 41"
    16.5" x 35"
    16.5" x 24.5"
    16.5" x 18.5" (two)
    31.5" x 22.5"
    36" x 26"
    41.5" x 22.5"

    A couple have a small hole or two poked in the vinyl, and one (I think) has some duct tape fixing a hole. Zippers all function fine.

    Re: Replacing Cushion covers - going, going, ....

    So, I finished all the cushions and replaced the covers on my last camping trip over the long weekend (actually Wednesday night through noon Monday) [:D]

    Here is the Gaucho before:

    And now:

    And since the back side was a different fabric (they didn't have enough of the preferred used on the fronts), they are reversible (in part)!

    Or all together (except I didn't think about matching the pattern [:O]):

    So I don't think I'll be showing this setup often!

    So, if you like the old fabric, and have a need for any or all of the sizes listed above, PM me. Otherwise, they are going in the trash [:(]

    Love them! I kept my old fabric on and just put the new covers over. [LOL]. I hear ya' on the pattern match. Matching from cushion to cushion for a seamless look has NOT been fun. I have two left to do and because of the pattern, need to buy more fabric [V]

    Very nicely! Looks professionally done. Excellent job.

    Plaids can sometimes be a pain to match up the pattern on, but I wouldn't worry about it. It looks good.

    Well done!

    Nice job! I sorta like the mixed pattern-solid seat bottoms with plaid seat back cushions and vica-versa.

    Nice job, Maybe I'll get around to doing the same. My '93 Coleman cushions are getting ratty at the corners. Mine are mounted on plywood though. Stapling instead of sewing [:D].

    Replacing Cushion covers - old ones going, going...

    Thanks all for the kind words. Now I just have to get another 7 yards of something to do the bottoms of the mattress covers. They are falling apart. I have a funky brown with some squared-off O's scattered about. The brown goes good with the green cushions but they will be covered with sheets or sleeping bags so I was not too concerned about a match.

    No takers on the old covers? So, going, going, gone?
