I was so excited to find this! I hardly ever come on Craftster anymore (there was a time I would not have believed I'd someday be saying that), but just happened to click my "updated topics" link to see the haps. I organized the first Tiny House Swap, and am so thrilled to see the legacy continue! Now with spooooky twists. If you do the winter one I want in! My grad school applications will be done by then (god willing).
Ahh, brilliant. Spacers. I would not have thought of that, but obviously necessary! Is the "sew mount" what I am describing (wrapping the matte board with fabric, doing tiny invisible stitches to connect the artwork to the backing)? If not, can you explain what you mean?
Hey, thanks! I wonder if I could just do teensy stitches, even, in the color of the cloth. My experience with pins left in fabric over time is that they rust for some reason...but if I did small stitches onto a cloth background that might be perfect! Thanks for the tips!
Your picture didn't load, but that may have been just because of the slow connection I have. Your instructions make perfect sense, though. Thanks again.
I wasn't sure which board this fit best on, but I decided artists are most likely to know about framing. I have a cloth dishtowel with a very sweet, dyed-in Swedish scene of lingonberry picking that I would like to frame for a friend as a house-warming present. I don't have an unlimited budget for this (could spend $50, max, would prefer to spend much less!) and have no idea how to go about framing something made of cloth. I would prefer to leave the edges showing, they are nice rolled hems. Any ideas on how to do this? Mount it on nice matte board, cut to frame size, is my instinct, but what can I stick it to the matte board with that won't damage the cloth? Help much appreciated!
