I tend to do it the DIY way, marking out the dots on the reverse with tailors chalk. Obviously this takes a lot longer, but hey, you know me, laborious, time consuming, I love it!
Then it all has to be stitched with running stitch through the dots before drawing it up tight and embellishing the front. I love how this looks when it is done. This piece is just a sample but when the panel of text is put through this process, embellished and the ties removed, trust me, it will look divine.
If everything goes to plan I should have this completed before the weekend is over. I then intend to do a few things for the shop. My purses have sold out which I am delighted about and I have ordered more purse frames to replace the stock. There is also a tiny germ of an idea growing in my head, I hope to have more on that soon.
