Machine Wrapped Cording -- for Yvonne

I took a machine wrapped cording class from Linda Mathew in 2007. There is a link that she posted in 2009 showing lots of good info on making machine wrapped cording. I don't have any pictures from back in 2007 but I did find some of the cording that is still to be used in projects. I did my best to describe how each was done below the picture. Click on the pic for a closer view.

Your blog is very inspiring! I browsed back quite a few posts and love your adventuress spirit. I love your Mom/daughter photo from what looks to be the 1940's, based on the clothing styles. Keep exploring! Oh, and yeah, that link with all the tutorials was very helpful!
