After weaving it, a piece of interfacing has been ironed on it to keep everything in place and making it strong.
Then we sewed a border and backside of soft pink leather. Made holes and rivetted them for a corset closure, and finished the cuff.
It still needs to be photographed and listed, but it makes me wonder. How can people say expensive to handmade? I do understand 'above budget', but not expensive when they do not know how much work is involved, or I guess that is the problem, people should know how much work there is actually involved in handmade. I guess that showing creative process is the way to show people how much we (with we I mean creative people in general) put into a piece.
Mum found herself another frustrating job, she somehow likes to frustrate herself with boring projects :) She does like to do it, she only wonders how she get herself in to such things. This one has a funny story too, which she will share, next week. Oh and PJ's are a must with embroidery, no other outfit works better!
And finally my progress in my table cloth. Not as much as I hoped but almost three quarters are finished, so the end is in sight!
