I'm kind of dissappointed that the top edge of each section seperated from the panel. I'm going to try hand stitching ite edges to the panel and hope it looks better.

Hi Colleen, hope you can sort out the edge. Do you have an overlocker, you could do a rolled hem all the way around it. If not hand stitch it and just stitch onto the edge. Good luck Yvonne *4u

I hand stitched tham, and they look fair. But...I'm planning to fill it with crepe paper and silk flowers. I hope that will detract from the not so nice edges.

Glad you could save it Colleen, well done

It is still beautiful even though it separated.

Beautiful, so sorry it separated! It does look like metal mesh, I hope you can fix it successfully, that's a lot of thread in there! Hugs, Marji

Thank You! It isn't really falling apart, so, I hope a few stitches will help make it better.

Cooleen, it is too bad this happened - I hope the hand stitching works - I would put WSS under it and try working with a stipple stitch on your machine - or a zig zag - unless you don't feel comfortable doing that. Good luck - *4U

I actually HAD thought about zig zagging it on my machine, but I wondered if it might pull too much and cause more seperation. I think I'll try it on kust one panel first and see how it works.

That may work. It is a shame that happened with all of the stitching that went into it.

I know, and the thread was not exactly cheap. At this point, with so much money to still have to put our for the party, I really can't afford to buy enough thread to try again. Nevermind the fact that it wasn't the easiest thing to work with.

I think that you should be able to do that. Sometimes if you do not have the stabilizer tight this happens, but I am sure that you will be able to fix that. But this does make it look as though this is made of metal mesh.
