I was debating on what type of fabric to use. I didn’t want to use canvas, cross stitch fabric or katcha. So, off to my fabric and table cloth stash I went and pulled out some burlap/jute.
I always have an abundant supply of DMC thread, so it was the obvious choice. I guess you can use any type of thread, but I went for their thicker cotton skeins to go with the larger weave of the fabric.
I randomly stitched some triangles. No patterns. No plan. I just kept stitching!
I sewed triangles adjacent to each other. Like my recent projects, the design turned out being geometric again!
After I was done, I took a plain canvas I had lying around. Of course, it had to be smaller than my piece of fabric.
I then stapled the fabric onto the canvas, making sure to pull tight with each staple. You don’t want the whole thing falling apart later on!
I’m nearly out of walls to hang my stuff on! What am I supposed to do with all these wall art pieces? 🙂 I’d love to see what designs you come up with. Tag me @mikkomix on instagram!
