String Art with Stitched Triangles

Two of my loves are papercrafting and needlecrafting. This project combines both!




It took some Googling and watching YouTubes on string art, and then some trial and error. If you just stitch each color in succession, you will end up with the last color laying on top of the other two colors. To have each point overlap the other, you will need to take care to slip the needle under the previous color for each stitch on one side, necessary only on the last section. This is true for any shape (square, triangle, diamond, hexagon, etc.).


Sent this card to dear friends who gifted us with season tickets to Mariners games this year! In 2020 this means cutouts in the stands as no one can attend in person. What a fun, great gift! We are in Terrace Club, section 242:

A while ago these same friends gave me a box of 4-1/2 x 6-3/4" Fabriano Medioevalis single cards that they intended to use for their daughter's wedding but did not. Crafted in Italy by the Fabriano mill, this fancy cardstock is perfect for stitching! Thick and not easily torn. Used this special cardstock for this card. Thank you, Martha & Terry!!!

Stamps: MFT Essential Sentiments
Dies: SU Stitched Triangles, MFT Pierced Rectangle Frames
Misc: embroidery floss

I hope you find things that spark joy during these challenging times.
