I started to make the first 500 shrouded figures:

  1. Cut square of calico from a big roll
  2. Sew it down one side
  3. Place figure inside the shroud
  4. Tie the head, chest and feet with tape allowing the tension of the material to form its own shape so that each is different

I was sewing more shrouds all the time – it was incredibly painful, especially my right hand. I almost felt I wanted to do something that hurt to get over feeling sorry for myself.
