Do It Yourself - - What To Do With -

Show off your tex­tile tal­ents by fram­ing wo­ven works in a grid of shadow boxes, this photo. Here, a col­lec­tion of 9-inch-square ta­pes­tries is crafted us­ing the same pat­tern (see page 58 for how-to), but each show­cases a vari­a­tion on their shared color pal­ette. Heavy-duty dou­ble-stick tape holds each piece in place in­side a shadow box. For a long-term hold, poke holes in the card­board back of the frame and use a heavy-duty nee­dle to stitch each piece to the back in a few places.

THE TAS­SELS, CALLED RYA KNOTS, ADD FUN FLAIR TO THE TA­PES­TRIES, BUT FOR A MORE RE­FINED LOOK, LEAVE THEM OFF THE TOP AND BOT­TOM.
