Mother Ginger Jute Straps
The jute straps, furniture webbing actually, are 3.5" wide. The photo shows the strap wrapped around a piece of Plex Pipe (L) and pinned to the hem (R). The hem is 1.5' deep for the bottom Plex pipe to thread through. That's actually deeper than was needed for the pipe but it will probably come in handy for attaching the strap. The hem was a straight stitch with a multi-zigzag stitch over it for strength.
The circle is complete and is sitting on a ladder outside but it was too dark to take a photo.
Tomorrow the skirt will go over the structure and it will really look like a skirt!
