it’s not pretty, but it’s done…….

Yes, there actually is a baren underneath
all of those clamps, clips and rubber bands!

Since my first three attempts at re-covering my baren
failed miserably, I decided to enlist a little
extra help.
 Clearly it’s unconventional, 
but really was helpful in holding
everything in place while 
I folded the edges in, and twisted 
the handles together.
I had way too much material along the edges,
but decided to leave it “as is”
 for fear of splitting the bamboo if 
I tried to trim the excess away.

Hopefully it won’t fall apart the first time I use it!

    Wow. OK. You've set the bar high here… I have two skins sitting on my desk. Hopefully will give it a whirl in the next couple of days. I'll report, of course 🙂

    Annie, I'm sure yours will look great! After mine was dry, I was able to trim away some of the excess, so it looks a little neater.
