My table is full of bits and bobs, I really must have a sort out. It's my playing table, I sit and fiddle with things. Move them around, like a construction set. I used to play with my brothers Meccano when I was a kid, didn't want any dolls, I liked his toys better than mine.
Anyway, I've got some offcuts of plywood, 6 inches by 8 inches, found them in a skip. Clean new wood. And I've got some slate pieces, can't remember where I got them from. I want to attach them to the wood, but don't want to stick them on. I want to sew them on with thread. How to do that.
Then I arranged the pieces on the wood and used a map pin to poke through the centre hole to make a mark on the wood, which I then drilled. I used the map pin to make three holes around the edge of each piece and pushed the pin through to the back, the wood is quite soft. I used coloured cord, had to pull the needle through with pliers.
