Anne Stradal, ABS Designs ( http://www.absdesignsonline.com/) wrote me and asked about the hanger in the top. I do not do use this method but after looking at her web page (she does use this method) I decided to add this amended post for those of you who like this method. I will show you my method when I get the cording completed.
Do this before attaching top piece.
Corded Hanger insert in top: optional
Cording should be made now and hanger inserted into top before attaching top to roll-up. Cording should be longer than desired length so two knots may be made; one below and one above the center hole.
Using a large Chenille needle or awl to make a hole in the top of the cap piece; I would do this before covering the piece with fabric, it will make it easier to push cording through. Cover with fabric, run the
Chenille needle again through the hole and fabric and then using a Chenille needle push two ends of the cording through the hole. Place a knot on the back side of the cap to hold cord in place. Also make a knot on the top of the cap close to the top, this will cover the hole and give a decorative finish. I would place a dab of glue under the knot to secure firmly.
Thank you for stopping by again this week, I hope you find time to stitch today, I’ll be making cording the rest of the week! ttfn…sue
