Sewing new windlace

I have talked before about sewing windlace as opposed to gluing it. Here are some pictures of some black vinyl with simulated perforations sewn into windlace using 1/2" rubber sponge rod and sewn with a 3/4" welt foot. I also have a 5/8" welt foot that I use when making fabric covered windlace. This whole process took about 1/2 hour, and that included cutting out the fabric, changing the welt foot, and doing the sewing for 24 feet of windlace. That sure beats gluing it by a mile, and you can see it makes perfect windlace.
