A more fun way to frame your favourite photos is to make transfer prints with them and add lovely embroidered details. We printed out a picture in black and white, cut out the design and ironed it to the fabric. (Instructions included with the transfer sheet.) Make the picture slightly larger than the embroidery hoop, so that the edge is not visible when you mount the hoop. Draw the pattern with a self-erasing marker or embroider free-hand. We embroidered using half the embroidery thread (3/6 strands) and a back stitch. Find more tips and advice about how to embroider in our free instructions, Embroidery School (600854). MOUNTING: Iron the embroidery with a damp cloth on top (set the iron to cotton). Make two circles out of white card (730910). Open the embroidery hoop and trace the inner circles, one circle with the inner diameter and one with the outer diameter. Cut them out and place the big circle under the fabric and over the inner embroidery hoop; tighten the outer embroidery hoop and cut off the fabric 2-3 cm outside the edge. Fold in the fabric at the back and secure with the small circle.
