in your houses
which you do not know
to be useful, or believe
to be beautiful" William Morris, from “The Beauty
of Life” 1880
HiThanks for your lovely comments and suggestions on how to do a long bolster. I do get my zipper and pulls from Rowley. I've never tried sewing a zipper in that way before. I don't do a lot of bolsters, but next time I have one, I'll give your method a try. It's funny that everyone agreed on the fabric being less than pretty. I tried my best not to say outright that I HATED it and thought it was incredibly ugly. There was just so much of it. Oh well, like I said, I just make what I'm given and if I don[t like it so much, I try not to think about it.
