I chose a fairly thick fabric but wish I had gone for upholstery fabric as I think it would have looked better, still there is always next time. The closure is a large metal sprung frame, what fun we had trying to put the little bolts in to secure it, strangely no-one had a pair of pliers in their sewing kit!
It was a lovely day meeting up with the regulars that always attend.
