Beginner needs help with swing patterns

msbattAugust 15, 2009

Does anyone have suggestions on buying life-sized paper patterns for outdoor (especially porch swing) patterns? I don't have a lot of experience in furniture building, but I can't seem to find anything suitable locally and want a porch swing like my grandmother had. I AM slow and patient. (*grin*)

I don't want anything really fancy, just a basic, contoured swing---but I *do* want a real paper pattern. I'm an accomplished seamstress, and I do know the value of buying the right pattern to begin with.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

My wide wanted an Adirondack chair a few years ago, and rather than reinvent the wheel I bought plans that worked out fine. The same company offers plans for this porch swing, which appears to have a contoured seat.
