How to Make a Sweet Fabric Frame

Oct 16, 2011
Article Image
There are few things more satisfying than displaying a favorite photo in a frame you made yourself. And, this surprisingly simple project comes together quickly. Simply layer and sew the frame’s fabric front and back and then give it structure with a cardboard insert. Then once it’s sewn, add flourish in the form of sweet flower and button accessories. You can craft this entire project with leftover bits of fabric and notions, making this 5×7-inch frame not only a timesaving handmade gift option but a wallet-saving one as well. Kayte Terry shows you how to use up your sewing stash to showcase your favorite photos in this article from Quick Stuff to Sew Vol. 3.
