French Knots in Paper Too

I did not do as thorough a job of documenting this piece as I did with the first one. I chose to create a less elaborate design with this piece, and work with larger circles in a slightly different way. I can’t decide whether or not I like this french knot composition as much as the others because it feels too simple, as if it needs more to make it complete.


In the photo above you can see the holes punched in the paper before stitching. I love this part of the process because it has a satisfying feeling and sound when the needle go through the paper.


This is the second of three french knots in paper works I decided to create for the Eastside Culture Crawl. I do plan on making more because I have fallen in love with the process.
