Upholstery question

Rats decided to use my Scamp as a condo while I wasn't using it. Now I need to re-do the upholstery. Does anyone know how many yards of fabric I will need to purchase for a Scamp with front bunks?
Thanks in advance.

I think it takes about 15 yards to cover all cushions in a 13' with front bunk. At work so can't check but I read it in a thread on the forum. Try using the google search option. HTH. Take care,

I found one entitled Fabric Yardage started by Beadbug 9/21/2010 where they say 13 yds. New iPhone don't know how to make a link yet. HTH

I did my 16' Scamp and I would suggest that 13' yards would be the very min.

How much you need has a lot to do with how you plan on finishing the cushions. Box sides will take more than a rollover side. If you are making your own edging trim you will need extra fabric for that. I see some folks showing a pattern layout that isnt really in best sewing practises but it will result in less fabric being used though. Best practises is to layout your pattern all running in the same direction on the fabric weave. If you have a repeating pattern for your fabric, you will need to match the pattern from one section to the next, so layout placement will eat up a bit more fabric.

Plaid and stripes take more if you plan to match the sides to the top and bottom.

I think it took 22 yards of vinyl to do my 19', including the door.
