I made this for a Dr. Seuss swap on Ravelry. I plan to frame it or somehow mount it (any suggestions?).

I hope you like it!

edited 4/9: i framed it in an 8"x8" scrapbook shadow box. i really like how it turned out. i hope my partner loves it!!

I LOVE IT!!  The Lorax is so great.  I think a simple black frame would be great for it.  Awesome job!

Love love love! The Lorax is my favorite... great job! Is it crayon tinted?

I am the Lorax who speaks for the trees, which you seem to be chopping as fast as you please.

this is my favorite Dr. Seuss book of all time!! I got a huge grin when I saw the thumbnail!! I think you could showcase the work by a simple frame, but a red & white striped frame would rock (imo of course)! great job Smiley

This is so awesome. I am instantly jealous of your swap partner.

And I agree with fiberartsy. With the colors and wonderful job, a simple black frame would be perfect.

i have bought "foam" board at hobby lobby (in my store it is near the framing dept) for like a $2 for a huge sheet.  you'll need an exacto knife or box cutter to cut the foam board.

cut the board to fit your embroidered piece and then lace up the back.  i use 2 threads to making knotting off easier.....

That looks wonderful!  I love your Lorax. 

Looking to de-stash cross stitch magazines, particularly Cross Stitch Gold or New Stitches?  Please drop me a line!  I'd love to swap or buy some missing from my library!
