Description

Things can get developed if I was a bit bored. Approx. 58 × 39cm table runner from 100% wool (felt like type) in black as basic. Ornamented with red wool (also felt type fabric) and a few hours stichting work. From an old book about ornaments (Leipzig 1902) I got the ideas, altered a bit here and there, made a different kind of border and the table runner was done. Back has been doubled with same type fabric.
Will be decorated on a walnut table with silver candle stands in the time before chrismas.

Material Notes

100% wool black, felt type fabric; 100% wool red the same type, 100% silk sewing thread.

Difficulty

Novice

    When I first saw this on the creations page, I thought you’d painted or stamped it. Now I’m just completely in awe. It looks great, and I love the design!

    Thanks a lot – Ja, es war viel Arbeit die immer dann gemacht wurde wenn sonst nix zu tun war. Approx. 60 hours of labour.

    You’ll need quite a lot of patience – after your are finished you’ll like the result. It took me approx. 60 hours of labour. Can’t remember exactly, if there was nothing to do in the house I went to the Bernina and start sewing.

    Most of all I’m fascinated by the technique you used to create the ornament. One gotta have a lot of patience for this kind of work. Love the result.
