I mentioned these in an earlier post, and wanted to have something that was better than the ones in the shops which ranged from the cheap and nasty to expensively trashy.
I had a rummage around in my craft box, which has a miscellany of materials and found some black suede like fabric that I brought but never used, some black stretchy velvet fabric also came out and I hunted high and low for the ribbon which I brought last year but couldn't find it.
So a trip to the fabric shop at Lemon Quay in Truro saw me buy some cornish tartan fabric instead which I think looks attractive but you tell me what you think?
Each one is hand sewn, partly because I enjoy doing things the hard way sometimes and partly because the sewing machine is not conveniently placed at the moment. Each one takes about two days/evenings work to put together and so far I have done two due to the amount of work I have to do for my college course.
