Swags & Jabots

Postby angelalee511 » July 5th, 2016, 7:08 am

My customer got these hung, but I have to go over and fix the folds. They weren't done properly. :rotflo: But for my first set, I think they turned out okay. The next ones should go more smoothly and look better. She hung these on the wall over a wide screen TV. She wanted a more theatrical look. She didn't like the TV hanging on this wall with all the other design elements in the room. She thought it looked ugly. :rotflo: I finished the panels several weeks ago and the pillows were done months ago. Everything was pressed when it left my house! But she doesn't like that look.

I do not think I'd be sewing for that person again! What else does she want? :ranting:
Life is good.

I usually hang them, but this is plaster, so she has another guy do it. Then I go over and make them pretty. He just doesn't know how to make the folds nice and even.

You did a wonderful job, sewing those is not easy.
