In anticipation of binding the upcoming troubadours book in the medieval raised-cord style, I cobbled together a sewing frame:
I know, I know. If you’ve ever seen a real sewing frame before, this look like one built from a description in a book with no illustrations. But with the absence of miniature keys, I think this will do – or at least be better than doing it freehand, which I’ve attempted a few times. It’s made of walnut, of which I seem to have a lot, and you haven’t known frustration till you’ve cut 1/4″ think walnut with an x-acto knife. But I think it will hold together, and now I can tackle headbands!
