Now I have five more pots to put in my Etsy shop. Hmmmm, well I have to sort out the photographs first, crop, re-size etc before I list them. I'll start that this morning and hope to get a few up today.
I make the pots in batches. I cut out a set and and then do the preparation in three 'stages'.
First I iron the vilene onto the pockets (it's sticky backed) and also make sure that all the other pieces are ironed too.
Part two consists of sewing the heavy duty stiffening onto the denim bottoms and measuring all the pockets, pinning and sewing them down.
Part three is when I make the handles and add the circular bottoms to the pocketed part and the plain lining to the denim reinforced inner bottom.
Finally I assemble the whole thing. This is (naturally) the part I like best!!!
Oh, you see the slight 'bulge' at the top of the pockets? That's there to make them easier to use and stop shuttles etc 'bulging' into the inside. Well, I know what I mean!! I do know that it makes it harder to assemble them but who said life should be easy?!?!?
