Lacing BonesLacing Bones
Now available in 2 finishes, flexible and non-flexible. The flexible steels are not top quality but they are all we can source at the moment. You may find them a little unfinished so we are keeping the price lowish until we can have some better ones made.
How to use lacing bones...
Sew the two centre back layers along the seam line right sides together, turn and press. Sew a line of stitches very close to the finished back edge. Pin the lacing bone in between the layers, mark the holes on the fabric, remove the bone, punch holes over the marks, reinsert bone lining up with holes. Insert eyelets then sew along the edge of the lacing bone using a zip foot.
The holes in these bones are cut to imperial sizes but we have found that our 4mm eyelets with washers fit pretty well although these are not appropriate for very thick or many layers of fabric.
