Found 13th Aug 2016
Today my daughter sat on our swing seat,the material gave way and she has fallen straight through. She's tiny before anyone makes a wise comment about weight ! It's only 13 months old and the rest of it is fine, canopy, cushions,frame etc, so it seems a terrible waste to have to throw it out, but I have been searching everywhere I can think of and can't find a cheap replacement. I think I paid about £45 for the whole thing, and I just need the fabric canvas part. I have emailed the company I bought it from to see if they will replace it, especially as my poor daughter has suffered quite nasty bruising and scrapes to her skin where she fell through, and I really think it should have been better made. I have a sewing machine, but it wouldn't cope with sewing through canvas though. Any links for what I need would be appreciated, thanks.

Hi, yes something like this, but this is over £50 with p & p , which is more than the whole swing seat cost. Hoped I could just get the piece of canvas material for a reasonable price, otherwise I'll just buy a whole new swing seat, but it seems such a waste.

It is definitely a waste but unless you can do it yourself, it's going to cost a bit. You may be better off looking for a used one, going to be difficult though!

I had a cheap asda swing seat and same happened to mine. I went on ebay and bought some heavy duty canvas and made my own using the ripped one as a pattern. I am no dressmaker and it really was easy. straight seams on a sewing machine. I think I used heavy duty thread too.

Thank you, I wasn't sure my sewing machine would go through it, but I think it might be worth a try .

You can get stronger needles for canvas. Like a jean needle. Their a lot stronger now. But ask at sewing shop regarding needles. The know there stuff.
