I painted the canvas with acrylic paint and let that dry. Meanwhile, I got a bunch of scrap fabric (chocolate lollipop by Anna Maria Horner) and cut strips...sewed them together , and trimmed it evenly to make the "thread". After that, I sewed on the 2 brown strips and pressed it. Then I sprayed it with craft adhesive and put it on the dried paint. I'm going to go over it with some modge podge to seal it, but I'm out.
