My Mother-in-law just created a new sewing space in her basement, it is huge, I wish it were mine! She was complaining that she didn't have a clock down there and wanted one to fit in with the sewing decor. Soooooo, I made her this one with some fabric I already had and one of those clock kits from walmart.

Great idea! One thing tho: how is the fabric able to take the weight of the clock mechanism without sagging? Did you do something to make it nice and straight? Or is it just the type of fabric that you used?

I love it!  And ditto Niza... how do you keep it from sagging in the middle?

I used a very stiff interfacing. The clock mechanisim is very light weight.

*so* cool! i just may jig up one of these for my mom. her sewing room is in the basement and tends to resemble a dungeon/time vacuum since there's little natural light and almost *no* mode of communication with the outside world. how did your mother-in-law like it? i'm sure she was totally blown away!

Thank you so much for all the kudos. My MIL loved it, she didn't even mention the few mistakes in the stitching. I plan on making a few more since it was so easy. I would like to get some made up to put away for christmas presents.
