Week 5 Monday

Today we made great progress with our bumpers. We cut the fabric, and set up a sewing machine with upholstery thread and stitched them together.20140204-152808.jpg
The first step to making reversible bumpers is to sew the red and blue fabric together.20140204-152914.jpg
The pieces are turned so the seam is to the inside, and the flap is sewn, 5.5 in from the seam.

We marked, cut and sewed the pockets at the ends of each bumper.

We experimented with zigzag stitching to keep everything in place.

Elsewhere we were busy greasing gearboxes…

…and manufacturing too. After each new piece is made, we need to debur it so it is smooth.
