It's been more than a year
since I created a
Fabric Wrapped rug
The fabric strips are cut,
400 feet of 3/16 cotton clothesline rope,
Let's......light this candle!
I am using a size 90
Superior Threads Topstitch Needle
I backed off a tiny bit
on the presser foot pressure dial
Just like riding a bike...
it is all coming back to me!
50 feet of clothesline rope
stitched so far...
100 feet sewn @ this point...
I am attaching the next
100 foot clothesline bundle...
I use a small piece of fabric
covered with glue stick
and place the 2 ends together on top...
Wrap the glued fabric around the 2 ends
and roll it up tight...
You are back in the saddle again,
ready to stitch the next 100 feet...
When 1 strip ends...
I put glue on the end of it...
and add the next piece of fabric to it.
This is what 200 feet of clothesline rope
looks like all stitched up...
It was 104 degrees today
and the Thread Shed does not have A/C...
The next 200 feet will have to wait until
it is cooler next week!
