Wooohooo, a second post today :o)) Well you were a bit short changed with the previous post, tis easy to put a load of links on a page and tell you to click around on them. So here's a post I made up all by myself.
In preparation for making a picture using the back of a piece of fabric, I needed to invent a way to hold the fabric in place leaving both hands free to push the needle through from both sides. Ideally one of those free standing frames would be best, but as I am too tight to spend the money, I thought there might be a way to make some sort of contraption from bits and pieces I already had, which would hopefully do the job.
I found this tilting table in a skip and nabbed it, after first seeking permission from the owner. Nothing wrong with it, in perfect working order. Then I picked out four 'D' clamps from a box in the shed, and put two on the top and two on the bottom.
Next I removed a whiteboard from it's frame, it was well scruffy and needed chucking. The frame is just the right size for fastening the fabric to it with plastic clips.
Then it can be laid over the two supports, top and bottom. I need to find a way to secure this to stop it from sliding off. Two pieces of elastic should do it.
