String Art Fun customer Marge Burns sent us this picture made from the free shell pattern. Instead of using it the regular way with nails and such, Marge made it into a card with embroidery floss and then added gems. The pattern was used at full size.
An article on the String Art Fun website describes a way of using string art as a fun way to teach math to second or the third grade pupils. The children are given a sheet of multiplication sums to solve. Once they have the answers they can use them to create a geometric design. The design can be either drawn on a supplied template, stitched on card using thread and an embroidery needle or created on a board with nails and string.
For more details and a sample work sheet visit the Notes for teachers section of the String Art Fun website.
Make a picture for your loved one with the free heart circle string art pattern to be found at the String Art Fun website. The design, that creates a heart within a circle, was inspired by a curve stitching pattern based on a mathematical formula.
As well as creating this heart circle with nails and string you can also create it as a greetings card with a pattern from the Pinbroidery website.
