I'm glad you guys mentioned Ikea now - I went down there this afternoon and the fabrics were lovely. I picked up some of the lenda fabric in red, and their minna fabric to use for the body core. I have the decorative side already, so I'm just starting the prewashing now. I can't wait to make a start, but am apprehensive at the same time as this is my first big project. I really hope it works out. The red fabric is going to have to have a few washes to make it colourfast, as I don't want it to bleed into the decorative side as that's a light blue colour.

Apart from that I picked up some of the Gutermann upholstery thread (seemed much heavier duty than the sew-it-all). Also have some denim needles at a 90 and 100 gauge - they will be enough won't they?

They will be fine, just make sure you x-box or bartack where the straps attach to the body. Have fun :sewing:
