Big Book of Boat Canvas by Karen Lipe
Covering far more than just traditional ``canvas'' work, the author leads the reader step-by-step through 36 projects, ranging from sail covers, dodgers, and duffel bags to interior cushions, privacy curtains, and hanging lockers. With thorough discussions of modern fabrics, a review of basic sewing and canvas working techniques, helpful maintenance and cleaning tips, plus a wealth of decorator's wisdom, this handy book covers everything a person needs to know to add style, comfort, and utility to his or her boat, whether sail or power.
