This client did not have a bimini installed yet and wasn't sure when he would install one. He had the bimini arches secured with zip ties but didn't like how the arches looked naked, so I created this streamlined bimini boot for him.
Ooooh, give me those straight, neat stitches and crisp, folded Sunbrella.
If you had told me when I was a child that I would find incredible joy in sewing marine canvas, I would have thought you were super weird. Funny how life can take you places you never could have imagined as a kid.
My dock hands and sewing buddies.
Traditional bimini boots cap the ends and then hang down; I think they look loose and baggy. I suggested he leave the ends uncapped and that I'd make the fabric fit snugly, hugging all three arches.
Sunbrella pleats like a dream.
The fabric featured is Sunbrella Tuscan marine grade fabric. I used my Sailrite LSZ-1 for this project.
