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.
