Altered Embroidery Frame

>> Thursday, April 14, 2011

I have started a series of embroidery frames in various sizes on a wall in our master bedroom. Some have fabric & some scrapbook paper.

While on vacation in Myrtle Beach a month ago, we did a little flea market shopping & I picked up a 6pk of 8" embroidery frames for only $1...totally made my day :)

I love the idea of using pretty pattern paper in embroidery frames. You can dress them up or leave them plain. I wanted to add a few of my favorite instax pictures of my kids in a banner like form, hanging from twine.

Added some rub-ons to each photo & embellished with flower chipboard & butterfly accents.

Super simple & took no time to create. I can't wait until the entire wall is filled with these frames. Thanks for letting me share my project with you today...Happy Creating :)

So cool! Love. Going to make some for my next house. And, since I used to cross-stitch (a million years ago!), I have frames already! :)

So very clever! I love this idea for the hoops, and the clothesline with pins for the photos is adorable. :)
