Hi!

I haven't posted for awhile. Anyway, here are some photos of a project I just finished:

This project was super easy, I only used some old clothes I had lying around for the backing and an old curtain for the lace. Just cut to fit! Not to be smug, but I think it's super cute  Grin


If you wish, you can see more about my process at my blog:

Those are super cute and easy!! Genius... I've been needing an idea for my bedroom wall. You didn't tack the fabric in place at all? Is the tension of the frame holding it up well on it's own?

This is really striking.  I love how it showcases the different patterns of the lace.

I just used the little paper insert they put in the frames to trace the fabric/lace. When you put the back on it stays there because it's pressed against the frame. I should mention that there is glass there, but you could probably still do it without it - but you'd probably need to glue the fabric in or something. It's easier to dust this way anyway...

Thank you for all the nice comments!
