replacing twin dinette beds project

My newest project I'm tackling:

Twin dinette beds in the '64 Safari!!..different than most projects in that it has 2 attached cushions that curve towards the front..Just got the fabric, zippers and have finished taking apart the old covers..that was a challenge dealing w/the stitches and old material made w/the that synthetic propylene w/ textured backing material that is crumbling as I detach the seams!..it has about 8 easy sections that fit together like a jigsaw puzzle!..yesterday, I went to one JoAnn fabrics to buy zippers for the 4 cushions: I needed at least 60" length which I was able to buy by the yard tape style..the gal sold me the zipper slides..brought them home to put the slides in..wouldn't work..had to return to the other store we frequent..turns out the slides went w/the newer stock zipper tape..luckily the gal figured it out, got me some new stock tape and attached the slides on..she took back the old tape and gave me credit on that..so today, I'll cut, then sew together the pieces..hopefully it'll be done quickly..then I'll go on to do the other bed..

Paula, you are amazing. A multi tasking dynamo. You have been online most of the day, PMing me for one, shuttling to and from the store AND sewing.....all the same time???
