how to mount mini embroideries

Mini frame finished

Today I'm sharing a quick guide to framing your tiny embroidery in your mini frame

It really is very simple.

First of all you will need:

your embroidered piece

a piece of felt (about the size of the pendant/frame)

a piece of bondaweb (the same size)

embroidery thread or other thick thread

a needle with a large enough eye for six strands of thread

ribbon to hang it

I placed the pendant over my embroidery (making sure I had it nicely centred) then drew around the pendant.  Next I cut the circle (ish) shape out.

I used the embroidered piece as a template and cut the bondaweb and felt to the same size and then ironed the embroidery to the felt using the bondaweb (creating a sandwich)

Next I popped the frame over the embroidery/felt sandwich and used my frixion pen to mark all the holes (make sure it has marked on the linen).  Again make certain that the embroidery is sitting exactly as you want it.

You should be left with a nice circle all the way around the embroidery

Next trim your linen/felt sandwich to about 0.5cm outside the marks as above

Finally the stitching

I left a tail at the back of about 2cm and brought the thread through to the front.  Work in a back stitch and catch the tail at the back of the work so it is woven into the back of your stitches.  Once you get to the end of the stitching weave your thread end back through a few stitches and cut.  This leaves the back nice and neat.

This girl's head has rounded ears in the final pattern and these are the colours 

I used 

DMC 452 light brown

Anchor 381 dark brown

There will be a super giveaway here in connection with this pattern coming soon
