The trials and tribulations of getting this together...
Firstly I was going to try and stitch it together but realised it would be difficult .... yes, it was ....
so that was that and back to the drawing board.
Next came the idea to use the staple gun .... tried but No! did not work staples not long enough and it pulled the fabric ...Umphhhh!!!
Finally out came the glues .... yes, plural ..... which one to use ....now glue and embroidery is a NO NO !!
But I was at the end of things that could be utilised .... fabric glue, tried on a small area did not work not strong enough ... next another craft glue also did not work.
So the only thing left was contact glue ... So that was it ....firstly put the bronze fabric covered board on to the covered art board ... and a few hours later the board with the embroidery on was glued on the wrong side, a bit of a smear on the under board and finally after 30 mins I placed them together .... with a weight of books and a couple of hours later .... Viola!!! there was everything happily stuck together,
So the next dilemma is .... I think there is a need for a cord around the edge of the embroidery to make the edge attached to the bronze board clean and neat,
So need to take a trip to Spotlight and just try some cords ... but of course will actually make my own if needed.
