Back at it and it is coming along beautiful. The tubes are attached and I have begun to cut the strips of fabric that will be used to cover them. Here are some pics....
These tubes are made of buckrum (which is used to make hats) and filled with poly fill. They are hand sewn on so that they will be stable and secure.
This fabric will be stitched together and attached to the tube.
This will give you an idea of how colorful this will be! After I attach the fabric to the tubes, I will cover the fabric with a product called "Stiffy". Which is a fabric stiffener. This will allow me to shape it to the tubes. Then I will, above these tubes, start attaching the handmade paper that I have already shown you.
Have a magical and blessed day!
