"B" is for Boundweave

"B" is for Boundweave

Boundweave is not, in itself, a technique. It is a method of treadling.  There are three treadling methods. First is the flamepoint. In this treadling, four shades of one color are used. The second method is boundweave woven on opposites. Stylized figures, animals, flowers, trees, and abstract designs form the third group. *

Depending on the materials used, many things can be created. From wall hangings to floor rugs to inserts for clothing. Just use your imagination and see what you can dream up! These Santa's of mine are on the bottom of a finger-tip towel. I have used the stylized method on a rose path threading.

Just playing around with the threading. The brown is a TV !!
