My first referral

Sewingly Yours just gave me my first referral, yay! A lady with an authentic tapestry from India came to me wanting a hanging sleeve sewn onto the back. The tapestry was very large and fairly heavy.

It was a beautiful piece with a large elephant on the front. A friend of mine suggested using the ladder stitch to sew the sleeve on. I tried it for the first time and it was almost invisible. Way better than a slip stitch.

It was very challenging sewing the sleeve on because of both the thinness the backing fabric and the filmy, see-through nature of the fabric on the front. You can see the beautiful embroidery and fabrics in the following photos.

On a side note, quilting rulers apparently have more than one use. My son showed me that they make really great bridges for matchbox cars:)
