Fan/Light Pulls to Match

One thing about me is that I have this real matchy matchy thing.  When I use to sew more and made almost all my own clothes (I just don't have the time right now anymore) I had this thing about using every bit of left over pieces of fabric to make a matching handbag, hair bow, etc.  My friends told me they could always tell if I made it because it all coordinated.  Now when I make my own jewelry I have to have the whole matching set -- necklace/pendant, earrings, watch bracelet, hair barrette and even sometimes buttons for my shirt or sweater.

The same goes for my home.  Of course things don't match all the same there -- they just have to  coordinate well -- I like a mix of textures and colors as long as they are within the same theme.

So I decided to make our new fan/light pulls to match .. uh hum .. coordinate with .. our switch plate covers and cabinet knobs and here is the design I came up with.

Do you have any plans in the NEAR future for doing a tutorial on how to wrap that texture all the way around the -- in this case -- round fan pull? I love the rich texture and use texture a lot in my work but how do you avoid a nasty looking seam? Those fan pulls are gorgeous by the way!

Extraordinary work. I would really buy a tutorial tor for making round texured shapes without distortion!!

I do have plans for a tutorial, as a matter of fact. I love making these -- they are a lot of fun. I have set aside the month of August to complete 4 new tutorials and this is one of them. I have no shows until October so will be a good time to get them done.
