 How to make your picture

Print or trace an image like this on as large a scale as you can - ideally over two sets of A3 paper. Join them down the middle and stick them to some bondaweb.

Cut along the lines to make the various different shapes in the picture; place the shapes on the fabrics you want to use (NB: make sure you place them on the 'wrong' side of the fabric) and iron them in place.

After that, cut the shapes out in fabric and peel away the paper.

Iron the fabric onto the black sheet to make the image. Then, staple the black sheet to the frame.
