Default Material for external swing seat cover

The canopy over our 5 year old swing seat (plastic) has become torn
and irrepairable. I'd like to make up one myself, but I'm looking for
advice as to what type of material to use.

Ideally it would need to be resistant to bleaching in the weather, not
so thick that it couldn't be machine sewn to fit and preferably not
shrink or expand much in the rain.

Any useful suggestions?

As usual, thanks in advance!

Matt

Hah, decided yesterday to actually do something about a new cover for our
swing seat!

I've emailed these people

to see if they sell retail amounts. Looks as though the Sattine and Natte
fabrics will fit the bill. I'll let you know how I get on with them.
