Looking for replacement canopy for a freestanding swing

I got it at Lowe's. Don't know the brand..we were in the process of moving. I can't find replacement canopys anywhere.

I may have to have my neighbor make me one.

Thanks...Beverly

It would be very easy to make a new one. with the coated canvas or a laminated fabric you wouldn't even have to sew it. Just a straight piece of fabric and tuck the corners and tie with a another strip of fabric or pin with a decreative accessory. Tack it to the frame with press on hook and loop tape. (Velcro)

Here is a link that might be useful: Replacement canopy

Story do you have a Big Lots near you? I was just in last week and they have replacement canopies for your swing, i think they were $10 or 20,don't remember.

I made one using two 60 x 100 plain table clothes I had sewn two table clothes together trimming excess fabric from the center seam. I choose a color to match the swings frame (most neutral to match existing cushions)
This way the hems were already done on all four sides.

The left over fabric was used for two rod pockets. they already had one hem.

Just measure carefully to you old canopy!

I left the corners hanging, but you could crop for flaps or tailor fit them.

You can also turn over your seat cushions to get extra years out of them. Or buy three new separate ones for the swing. Much cheaper/prettier than the $150 Fortunoff wanted for swing canopy and swing cushion.

Thanks for all your postings,
