Cross stitch frame finishing tutorial


A cute and simple, no-fuss way of displaying your cross stitch. 

Uses plastic instead of cardboard for extra stiffness and durability.

A tutorial by GERA! designed by Kyoko Maruoka.

Cross stitch frame tutorial

 

Cross stitch frame finishing tutorial - suppliesSUPPLIES:

 

- stitched piece

- felt

- plastic board

- cotton quilt batting

- trimming (for sides) such as pom pom fringe

- ribbon (for top bow)

- sewing thread

- glue

- double sided tape

 

Note: you can use cardboard instead of a plastic board but it will be less stiff and less resistant to moisture.

The plastic board, felt and cotton are cut into the desired finished size and shape (here a rounded square).

The stitched piece is cut leaving an extra 1.5cm seam allowance all around.

 

 

ASSEMBLY:

1. Paste the quilt batting onto the plastic board.

 

2. Position the stitched piece over the quilted side. Fold and glue the remaining fabric on the back, making small incisions in the corners, so as to shape the curve.

3. Fix double-sided tape to the plastic board.

4. Stick the felt onto the back.

5. Stitch the trimming onto the frame, starting from the top center. Slip both ends of trimming inside to avoid fraying.

Optional:

At this stage, you can sew a cord

at the back for hanging the frame.
