Making the Lacing Panel – “X” Pattern
When making a panel using an “X” pattern, stitch the vertical bone channels and insert the “X” bones. Stitch horizontally such that the “X” bones are snuggly held in place.
Carefully stitch along one side of one bone, slowing down and turning the needle by hand when you get close to the crossed bone. You want to stitch up to the edge of it, but do not hit the other bone or you will break your needle.
Turn the panel and stitch alongside the other bone until you reach the end of the bone.
Do the same to the other side of the panel.
Use the same procedure to finish the “X” pattern.
Insert and secure the vertical bones. Then mark, stitch, trim, and edge the panel exactly as shown above.
