Whoo Hoo!!! Happy dance :D Day 15 of the Crazy January Challenge, and 15 starts. Great now I have an extra 15 WIP's :-o)
Today I started my largest project [131x307], it is a freebie available at Needleprint, called Northern Nights designed by Kathy of Gracewood Stitches, a beautiful band sampler. The sampler originally had two shades of gold, and three shades of blue, I've added a couple of shades of green and antique violet.
I'm not very good with instructions, so this may ramble a bit, and sorry I didn't take photos. First I measured the squares by laying the calico over the scroll rods, make sure you add a little extra for the width of the scroll bars. Sewed up the sides, leaving the top open, like a pillowcase. Stitch a casing tube around the top, like you would for an elastic waist in a pair of pants or a skirt. Measured the elastic around the frame (scroll bars). Making sure it is tight enough to keep calico in place, but have enough stretch in the elastic that I can still get the fabric round the tension knobs. Then inserted elastic into the casing tube, with a safety pin. Sewed the ends of the elastic together, and quickly stitched the hole closed.... There Bob's your uncle.
Here are the three sizes I made, for my bigger Crazies projects.
Well good night, this little pig is off to bed.
