Are you tired of swags yet?
Another swag order that was perfect for my new Parkhill template system..... it has paid for itself already in time saved! Bring 'em on!
Until I get more comfortable with the calculations, I'm going to mock up each swag first. Good thing I did with this one, because I had made a mistake. Here's the corrected mockup, in front of another mockup for a shade project I'll be showing off shortly.
I just love how, like magic, the swag "fingers" just lay down in a nice straight line, and a quick "snap" of the fabric produces perfect swag folds.
Another thing I've learned: hang the treatment up before finishing the ends and the top of the board, so if adjustments need to be made, there won't be lots of tedious unstapling. I realized that the center swag had to be nudged forward because layering it over the other swags created take-up and the center swag looked too short. An easy fix, with double-sided tape!
