Bell UH-1D soundproofing blanket
Anyone have a good suggestion for material to make the cabin soundproofing blankets used on Bell Hueys? It was silver looking with a sewn diamond pattern. It was used in other helicopters as well.

I'd take a stroll through Michaels Craft Store or something like that, you'd be amazed what ideas you can find for stuff thereAndy

I was watching tv the other night and a gal in a bikini was on. I noticed the material, it was made of what appeared to be synthetic and silvery like an old sci-fi spacesuit from the “Lost in Space” tv show.

A good source for the material is those cheap silver ironing board covers. Cut to size and then get the good lady to run a few diagonal lines across on the sewing machine to create the dimples / diamond pattern. Easy.

Did you sew it yourself? Did it bunch up as you sewed each hemline?

Yes on sewing it myself. I used craft bond spray adhesive to help prevent any bunching or miss alignment. Used 1/16 rubber as backer

That’s a talented cat. Does it do piece work or only a whole set?

Hi,

As MDSCustoms mentioned, here in the UK we have an ironing board cover that's pretty cheap, has a grey metallic finish, but when stitched and colour washed looks pretty convincing.

Cheers

Can you tell me a little bit about the colour washing? I have the same grey metallic ironing board cover but I was wondering how to take the metallic out of it.
