#6 Borders - Ränder




What if you cover the borders of a felted piece to make it more interesting? This allows me to give a kind of frame and also allows me to hang it from the main piece.

I'm always trying new possibilities of connections between pieces.

Was wäre wenn man die Ränder eines Filzstückes mit einem Stoffstreifen einfaßt, um diese interessanter zu machen? das ermöglicht eine Art Rahmen zu machen und auch das Stück vom Hauptbild zu hängen.

Ich suche immer nach Möglichkeiten, Verbindungen zu finden, um Stücke miteinander zu verbinden.



Here I made the same thing but I didn't stitched over the border of the fabric strip. As I had turned the fabric down, a very narrow standing frame was created around the white background. I like that.

Hier habe ich das Gleiche gemacht aber die Stiche nicht über den Randstoff geführt. Da ich den Stofstreifen nach innen eingeschlagen hatte, ein kleiner stehender Rand entsteht, der den weißen Hintergrund einrahmt. Es hat mir gefallen.

I like the contrast between the 'hard' line of the border and the softness of the felt.

Dear Sara, you always inspire me!

You are right bringing in the often neglected connections and overlappings between different kinds of materials - they can indeed be interesting and leave space for experimenting ...

I like the 3D-effect you got with that border!
