I did a bit of stitching, tried machine zig zag but that didn't look right, so I pulled that out and stuck to hand stitching.
I think its going to be a cushion front....or a fabric folly ... maybe.
One of the cleaners at work brought a pram cover she had made in to show me, its an unusual method of making it, that I thought some of you may not have known about.
I had not seen the method before but suspect its an old pattern idea.
It reminds me of the little woollen dolls we used to make as kids.
It produces a kitch, fluffy cover but I have to admit,
it does look pretty, is nice and light but would be quite warm I would think.
The method is described in the pattern and the first thing you have to do is build a wooden frame!
It would work in smaller sizes too and could probably make a nice little, if fiddly, teeny tiny, dolls house pram or dolls pram cover too.
Am I going to make one?
No.........but I recognise its a clever method!
Think Janice said you use alot of yarn, 5 or 600 grams and you have to keep the tension firm throughout the making.
( Janice suggests you use a peg to hold the tension in place, if you need a pee half way through the setting up lol....)
Also go over to
http://jeansmuse.blogspot.com and look at a very natty way to make fabric binding for yourself without buying an expensive binding maker.
All you'll need are the cheapest kind of craft knives which are dangerous to cut with but just perfect for forming binding!
