I recently spent three weeks in Canada last month, and I stayed at my sister's apartment. We were shopping at the Dixie Outlet Mall (I love that mall, it's full of outlet stores) and we came across a wall hanging she wanted to buy for the kids' room. I told her I could make her a similar one. So here it is...I'll be sending it to her soon. Smiley  (excuse the Lion King bedsheet. I'm a big fan of cartoon bed spreads.)

*the blank ones have paper that says "insert 3R photo here"

Fantastic, I might try to make something like this for my sister, she could have in her babys room

Or I coudl make one for myself...

instead of a million photo frames..

some quetions thought.

The "frames" what is the "glass" made if...is it vinyl??

and also, how did you get the back of the hanging to be not so flimsy, is it the fabric or have you used any sort of fabric sfittning things??

To answer your question...

The ones that already have photos in them are permanent--"laminated" them first with iron-on vinyl with about half an inch of excess on the sides, that's where I sewed on the "fabric frame". As for the ones where you can "insert photos" in, yep, that's clear vinyl. Smiley You can prolly use iron-on vinyl too, it would be easier to sew, although it's a bit costly on my part since I live in the Philippines and I have to order mine from amazon.com.

As for the fabric...The green is furnishing fabric. The pink is cotton twill, and I ironed on interfacing so it wouldn't be flimsy. Smiley After stitiching all the "frames" on the pink cloth, that's when I stitched it on the green Smiley

That's great. Where did you get those rings? Did they already have the little chain attached?

That's so awesome!  It looks great.

This post sparked an idea for me... it would be awesome to make something like that as a curtain!  I'd love to do that in my dorm room.. I wouldn't put it up in the window, but instead as a divider between the main part of my room and the sink/closet area.  I could hang it down from a tension rod.. oooh that would be a very fun way to divide the sections. Cheesy

Hello! Smiley Nope, I bought them at a sewing store. Smiley Then I cut a strip of cloth and beaded those seed beeds and then the circle at the end. While doing this, I made sure I sewed each strand on the cloth, so then I just machine sew on the strip of cloth (while it's under "frame") instead of attaching each strand one by one!

An easy way to add the clear vinyl that would be easy to sew, would to be to use those vinyl sheet protectors from the office supply store. They are thin enough to sew easily, and you can either make a "pouch" to slip a picture in to, or you can sew it directly to the fabric.

That is so beautiful!  Excellent choice of colours and patterns.  It looks very professional and something I'd expect to see at a higher end craft/consignment store.

That's sooo sweet, thank you! Haha! I've been slaving over papers for school this weekend, your post totally made my day! Smiley

I would totally recommend you guys make one for your loved ones. My sister loves it, she hung it in her living room. Smiley I think I'll make another one for my boss, but maybe try to stick a corkboard on it so she could pin papers as well? Hmm... must try that! Wink
