Fastenings and Attachments

The next stage of my work is neatening up edges and finding fastenings and attachments that are in keeping with the work as well as practical and hard-wearing. I have found that it is quite simple to sew a button hole in-between the squares of plywood. This creates a strong and durable opening for a toggle or a simple button.

I have also been working on hemming and neatening edges to stop fraying and trap the plywood within the fabric.

This is just a simple stitch which hides the frayed edges from the front but would however need to be covered with another piece of fabric to neaten up the inside.
