Consider a small master class on making frame for embroidery. First you need to make a drawing not only the framework itself, but also a passe. Draw the size of the frame itself, the inner part and schedule the center.

For the manufacture of subframe (passecut), plywood or sheet chipboard is perfect. And for the frame itself you can use wooden plinths left after repair. First prepare all the details.

Frame ends need to be styled at an angle of 45 degrees in places of gluing. Such a dock is called “Us”. In the center of plywood or chipboard, set 2 additional supporting bars at an angle of 90 degrees to each other, to do this, use metal corners. Conventional screws are suitable for fastening. After that, at the bars, attach the details of the frame and tighten the clamps (clips). When tightening, carefully follow the framework details not shifted and did not twisted. Instead of clamps, you can use a rubber tape. But this technique requires certain skills and skills. If the frame is large, it is better to use 4 or 6 additional bars for support.

To the homemade wooden frame turned out to be durable, use special PVA glue, and give the frame to dry well (about a day).

For an additional decor, the frame can be painted with a verse or varnish and decorate additional elements at the request of the needlewoman. If you wish, you can order glass on the size of the frame in the construction store. Be sure to cross the slim tape the edges of the glass so as not to be injured.

Manufacturer from girlfriend

Ready embroidered patterns require framing so that they can be hung on the wall or put on the shelf. To do this, you can order a special frame in the barnage workshop, or buy a standard photo frames.

But if you do not want to spend extra money, or embroidery has a non-standard form or dimensions, you can make it possible to make a frame of yourself from the girlfriend.

The most common option to perform a frame from the primary means – make it from the ceiling plinth of polystyrene. Details need to be cut on the required size and copper with special glue. Work with plastic plinth easy and convenient. In construction stores it is presented in a wide range, you can choose a suitable width and pattern. And price is quite accessible. After drying the plinth paint and decorate if necessary. For the substrate you can use Fane or Tight Cardboard. The sheet with a stretched pattern must be tightly entering the frame.

Instead of ceiling plinths, you can use PVC pipes. They can be glued, or use special plastic corners. It is better to take PVC pipes intended for wiring. For them, they do not need a special tool for gluing unlike pipes for plumbing. In the pipe on one side it is necessary to make a slot, where the subframe with the picture will be inserted.

You can construct a frame like an embroidery machine when the canva (tissue) is tensioned on the frame and snaps up with the help of clamps. For clamps (clips or clips) you need to cut the pipe along, cutting about 1/4 part. From the remaining part it turns out a clamp for fabric (canvas). During the pickle, burrs appear, they are removed using sandpaper. At the end of the work, make a leg or loop on the back of the frame. PVC pipes – affordable material with a low price, convenient in work and durable. Frames from it get lungs. They can be decorated to taste in the style of paintings or interior.

When designing embroidered paintings by the frames made by their own hands, do not forget that the frame should only emphasize the beauty of the main work, and not compete with it. Do not overload the baguette with an additional decor. Do not use screaming colors for baguette and passe, unless the embroidery itself requires. The baguette form must match the embroidery contours and emphasize it. Better, so that the edges of the picture did not touch with the frame, there should be free space between them (at least 2 cm).

About the glasses of the opinion of the needlewomen differ. On the one hand, the glass protects the embroidery from dust and sun rays, on the other – the glass gives glare and does not fully enjoy the beauty of embroidery. Here the choice is purely individual.
