 We soon realized through many iterations that the strongest feature of these floats was in the fabric itself.  We then decided to push forward and create the most interesting floats, which let enough light through, and created the most interesting effect. 
 Here the tacked area can be clearly seen as the darker area in the middle.  The spaces on either side were to have tubes inserted.  These would serve as structure, and also a home for the bulb as well.  
 We set out to explore the idea of using a double cloth to create "tubes" within the fabric in order to wrap it around a structure.  The use of a double cloth enables two layers of fabric to be woven simultaneously, and can be tacked together in certain area to define spaces.
