The design of that floor plan looks beautiful in embroidery. I can imagine it would also be really lovely on a set of pillows or something like that...

first off awesome project! I love the look of it! and, I dont mind the lack of fabric tension...

but, if you were trying to fix the tension I'd try two things...

1st - did you iron the fabric? I think you did, but if not that may help.

2nd - If you have a piece of cardboard or something you can lace the side edges around the back of it and pull it tight, kinda like shoe laces? I dont know if that makes sense, but it can easily pull it taut and remove those lines...

What a fantastic, original idea for a gift!  Very well done!  I'm just learning embroidery - all those back stiches!   Shocked

Great job, I love it!  It totally rocks!

Amazing! Both of my husband's cousins are architects, and they would love something like this. Too bad I just don't have the time - this must have taken forever!
