I had quite a few enquiries regarding the pin frame I was using for the house and garden print I have been embroidering. Yesterday I made another one for myself and thought I should post some more photos for those who are curious but not sure if they can make one themselves. the link to the original pin frame at CQMagonline is here.
I made this in less than an hour – that is cut the wood (remember I’m not good with power tools so Ashley supervised…lol), cut out the centre hole, wrapped the lot in batting then in bias binding. So easy. My hands were aching a bit towards the end as you do need to keep the tension on the bias binding I found to make it go on smoothly – although that could just be me….vbg.
This frame is cut from 3 ply wood – just a peice I found lying around Ashley’s shed. The batting I cut into strips around 1 1/2 inches wide. The size of the strips really don’t matter that much, use whatever is easiest for you to wrap.
This frame is 8 x 8 inches square. I don’t think I would go any larger as my hands wouldn’t reach. If you are going to make one of these I suggest using a lighter wood so it isn’t too heavy when you are holding it.
