This is the wrong side of one of my back sections. I have hand basted all the stitching lines, notches, grainlines, etc.
Here it is without all the text.
We are using this really thick cotton thread to do the hand basting. The white paper on the top is the wax-based tracing paper. It's really large so you can trace a few pieces at a time.
She suggests using Milliner's needles in size 8. They are long so it's easier to baste a long distance before taking another stitch.
This is NOT for use on my wool jacket but I finally found a supply for Beeswax. They have it at Black Elk Beads and Leather. The other thing they have is a lot of leather. I almost bought this fantastic red leather the other day but I want to make sure I have enough for a purse. I need to bring my pattern with me next time. Paulette, if you haven't gone there, you have to go.
