The ultimate, though, is to use a true industrial machine- especially one with a walking foot. It is a compact, portable industrial walking foot machine designed specifically for this type of heavy sewing. Use the best machine you can get your hands on, but don't let not having an industrial machine stop you- There is a lot that can be done with a heavy household machine.
Your machine will need a good supply of needles, bigger than the ones that are usually used for home sewing. You want the needle to be as close as possible to the welting cord- which you can only do with a welting or zipper foot. The finished side of the vinyl is facing DOWN, the piping on the bottom, and the line to sew along is on the top. I find it easier to finish off the piping from the other side- So at this point, I flip the work over. Keep in mind that some home machines will have a tough time sewing through this many laters, ESPECIALLY in the last step where you're going through the piping cord as well. Just as with the piping, start on the back of the cushion, since you'll have a joint here.
Keep sewing it like that all the way around, stopping about 6" or so short of where you started. The easiest way to cut the foam is an electric carving knife- So start scoping out the local thrift stores for one if you don't already have one around.

Make three predictions about what will happen to Britta in this story and share them with a partner. Britta is traveling in an area of Finland that was once Sweden, so many of the people speak Swedish. What did Britta do to make sure the cab driver would drive them back to the hotel after bringing Elsa to the hospital? If a person does something wrong, does it make everything all right to say a€?Ia€™m sorrya€?? When Mama came home after Elsaa€™s death, how did she try to console herself and her children? Although Britta didna€™t understand everything the doctor said, she was able to communicate fairly well. The doctor obviously recognizes Britta, and even though he cana€™t come down to steerage, what does he do for her? Why was Britta upset when she realized that Johan didna€™t have to go through the slow line she did? You CAN use a household machine for some work, BUT keep in mind that they are NOT intended for sewing material this heavy. You'll want at LEAST #16 or #18 needles (the bigger the number, the thicker the needle). If you don't buy enough, then go back later, the material might not come from the same roll- and might not be the same dye lot. If your machine simply won't do it, you CAN use a household thread, just be aware that it will have a limited lifespan.


One advantage to making it yourself, other than saving money, is that you can make ANY color that you want, rather than having to use what's available. This gives me plenty to work with to sew it on, and then stretch it over the foam and plywood when I staple it. When you get to the last side, stop about 2 inched short of where the joint will be in the piping. You might need to simplify, or eliminate the piping all together, if you can't sew through all those layers.
Now, Some people will do this differently- They'll measure it accurately, add a seam allowance, and stitch it before hand. In a medium stiffness, it is great for seating- Firm enough that it doesn't bottom out, but soft enough to be comfortable. Notice I didn't follow the outline- The key to a full looking cushion is to overstuff it a bit. HOW you install it depends on the application- You can screw into the plywood from behind, just make sure that your screws don't poke through the backing into the cushion.

She changes the subject from the kitten to how long the train will take to get to Liverpool.
He doesna€™t understand Swedish, and probably because shea€™s a girl, he doesna€™t try to understand her. She asked everyone a€?What is this?a€?, and she wrote down the words she remembered on some papers she got at the hotel desk.
She sold her the spoiled fruit and vegetables for a penny each day, and she also helped her learn English words. She got food and made meals, she made tea for Mama, she listened to her, and she encouraged her that things would turn out well.
It was a long, whitewashed room with triple bunks along the sides, and portholes by the top bunks.
It had nice wooden deck chairs and beautifully scrolled railings compared to the plain railings in Steerage.
She didna€™t tattle because she had gone up there, too, and she wanted to be able to go back again. She announced that Johan would have to take care of Mama and Arvid while she went up on the deck. She was just thinking about him and she figured he probably didna€™t have to stand in line with his own cup and bowl.
He told the boy to give the papers back, then he tried to get her to come in out of the storm.
She watched how the ship was pitching and reached for the rope when it was tipped the right way.
She finally agreed to accept his apology, but she said she would never forget what a cruel thing he had done to her.
Britta was a little stronger and a little more assertive, and Johan was a little more thoughtful and kind. She was afraid that America would be a place where people with money would get all the best treatment, and poor people would struggle. She saw her mother as stronger and positive, she saw Johan as a young man, and she saw them as a family unit rather than as separate people. They are usually a lot tougher than modern machines, the insides are usually all metal, as opposed to the plastic found in most of today's machines.
The interior vinyls will fade quickly in the sunlight, and will be prone to cracking and peeling over time.


You want a medium firm foam that will support a person sitting on it without bottoming out. Get the pattern PERFECT- The finished cushion will only be as good a fit as the pattern that you start with. You can cut them along the LENGTH of the material, to get them longer, or you can join multiple strips together to get whatever length you need.
With a piping foot, it'll pretty much feed itself, your job is to keep it even and lined up.
You'll need to feed the piping cord into the foot, and keep it all aligned on the line you marked as it feeds into the needle.
If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. She doesna€™t think her mother knows what to do, and she thinks her father would take charge.
Shea€™s afraid they might talk about the kitten and realize that the girls are telling a lie.
He took charge and went to find out what was going on, while Mama waited for people to tell her what to do. She gave the cab driver a note that said, a€?Wait here, please,a€? she had Johan wait in the cab with the driver, and they didna€™t pay him until they got back to the hotel.
There were tables and benches lined up down the middle, with little wood stoves between them. She was probably sad to be leaving Europe, sad about losing Elsa, and happy to be finally on their way. If she told, Mama might not let any of them go up there, and Britta hated to be disobedient. Yes, because he makes fun of her friend who helped her, even though he doesna€™t know ita€™s a boy.
Johan dances wildly and freely, while Britta stands aside clapping and tapping to the beat. They stayed together as they watched the Statue of Liberty, they raced down to get the trunks together, and they worked together to get the trunks up to the deck and onto the ferry.
She was very glad that they were all together again, although she was sad that Elsa wasna€™t with them. Monel is more corrosion resistant, so plan on using it in a saltwater environment for sure. The odds are, if you don't understand it, someone else is having trouble with it, too! It shows that Hilda is more imaginative and adventurous, while Britta is practical and sensible. It really meant that the first class passengers would get off first, then the second-class passengers, and steerage (third class) would get off last. But- You marked the shape of the cushion on the INSIDE- So you'll be sewing it from the back. English was really important to her, and maybe she reacted that way because everything had been so hard for the whole trip. You might get a few seasons out of it, but with all the time and money you are investing in the project, use the right stuff. There are also closed cell foams available, but they are pricey and tend to be kind of hard.
