Ever wished for a different way to display your embroidery? I love hanging my embroidery right in the hoop that I made it in but sometimes I want a variation in shape. Today I am going to experiment with hanging a small embroidery project on a canvas frame.
I happened to have this frame hanging around. There was some botched sewing on it so it was perfect for this project since I will be removing the canvas.
Above is an example of the canvas frames I am referring to. The canvas is stapled to a wood rectangle frame which you can see in the side view of the picture. Find a frame size that is suitable for the embroidery you are planning to hang. I chose a 5 x 7 frame since my project is pretty small.
Above is what I like to use for printing and/or tracing my designs onto.
Above is the square frame I am referring to. I like to use these sometimes, as opposed to the round frames because it gets the fabric really taut but does not leave wrinkles on the fabric.
Well, an interesting alternative to a round hoop. Pretty cost effective too.
Thanks for stopping by!
