I know we all have to learn but....
Some attempt was made to follow a frame line, but I don't know those frame  :P
Shame it seems to be nice material, I just cut the middle out to make the customer a stowage bag for his new bimini curtains  ;)


Some one paid for this !
Mind you makes me feel so much better  ;D

Someone probably saw zips starting "off fabric" for an enclosure and thought it would be a good idea for a bimini.  For tight enclosures, having a 1" tail can be invaluable, but for bimini's, no so much...  The turned-under edge on the strap cutout isn't such a good idea either, given the shape, but I've seen that trick loads of times.  Does it not have a rain flap at all?  Looks like the bimini ends at the frame.

Hi June, no rain flaps at all.
It's just so messy  ::) It has four short pockets for the pole & only two on each pole line up with it ??? the end pockets have not been cut to the right curve & are rucked up in the corners to make the bend.
And note the nice wavy edges  :-X   Don't they have straight edges in the Balearic's  :o

I think we could start a new section on how not to do it  :D
Or nightmare canvas   :P

I get to see some cheesey binmini on some oem deckboats. no flaps and they have me make forward top extentions that zip together. cost is a thing so we add no flap either not right but thats what they pay for

I kinda like that idea!  Think of all the interesting pieces of junk that everyone comes across.  What better way to learn the right way, than to see a crappy example next to the way it should be!

What do you guys think?  Should I create a folder next to the "Green Room" for the "Junk Room"?  Might replace the Friday Funnies! ;D  Anyone want to put in some pics of what "NOT" to do, not just canvas, but anything?
