Chapter 12 revisited again....

After Sian had seen my last piece she suggested I have another go as it still wasn't large enough for an assessment piece. Hopefully this 3rd attempt will be suitable. It's 10 inches tall and about 8 inches from back to front, more of an oval shape than round and it stands up properly this time because I used buckram for the base and between the lining and outer decorated fabric.

I replaced the eyelets with buttons covered with some of the decorated fabric I had left over.

After a few attempts at finishing the ends of the cords I finally came up with these.
