Frame Weight Bargello

February, 2011.  One of the members of the ANG Delaware's Seashore Chapter led this project and we had lots of discussion on what to use as a filling.  Since I wanted mine to be very heavy, I filled it with almost 5 pounds of BBs purchased at Walmart.  Perfect.  However, at that weight, I feared the BBs would stretch the canvas and backing fabric (a fake dark brown leather), so I lined both with a very strong muslim.  Worked.  All it needs now is a pretty tassel on the end (coming soon).  Also thinking of making another Ort Box to match the colors and design of this weight.
