Fabric Frame

November here already - it's one of my favourite months because it means I'm busy getting stuck into Christmas planning and making.

The only problem is that I like to be very secretive about my Christmas makes - I love the "SURPRISE" element - so I can't share with you what I'm making at the moment as Grace and Eve will read all about them.

[Don't worry Eve, I'm not knitting any more Nativity figures!]

Fortunately, I had a break from Christmas crafts, a small diversion (I do so love a diversion!), so I do have something I can share with you today.

Here it is, inspired by something seen on Pinterest, a fabric covered frame.

I started by finding an old framed print that was no longer wanted.

I stripped it down to basics (I kept the print - it might come in useful the some other project - you never know).

I cut lots of strips of fabric from my rag bag collection.

Then I got really and truly sticky with the PVA glue.  I just wound the strips around the frame, being very liberal with the glue.

Some of the fabric strips had a decorative lace edging which I retained and I think it looks good.

All finished - but what to put inside it?  I thought about suspending something but I haven't found anything suitable yet.

For the time being I've propped it up against the window.

And maybe it doesn't need anything in it - I can just enjoy the view.

I hope you are having a jolly time crafting, whether it's for Christmas or not.  I'm back to my secret stuff but I'll try and find more things to share with you before too long.


  1. What a lovely idea, really love the lace edging x

  2. What a great idea, I really loved the fabric and the lace edging you used.
