Given Kiwis are supposed to be able to make anything with number 8 fencing wire I put it to the test and asked my Kiwi partner to unbend some coat hangers-
this is probably not within the rules but I lacked arm strength to be able to untwist. I did the cutting and bending into shape, joining and framing.
I lined the back with black calico about 6mm from the edge- this was necessary to provide a firm, secure edge to lace the felt to.
Below are pictures of the hanging and close up of the frame and lacing. Size is 68 cm x 52 cm including the frame.
and finally analysis.
Enjoy your stitching distant stitchers.
