The fabric that could not be sewn, installed!

The all-over beaded draperies were installed today, and the site was close enough that I took a moment to run over and get a photo.

This is the fabric that could not be sewn by machine because of the all-over beading.  I was just barely able to join the widths with a 1/4" seam, and all the rest had to be hand-sewn.  The problem was how to create a rod pocket without being able to sew it by machine.

To read the whole story, scroll down to the previous post and find out more about the solution I came up with for this dilemma.

I'm pretty pleased with the results- it's an interesting waterfall effect.
