Magnetic Frames

Usually when I have time to spend on crafts, I use it to make new wreaths for my shop. Today, however, I decided to work on a project that I started a month ago: a magnetic frame. I actually plan to have three of these that coordinate, but so far, I only have the first finished.

This is made using a small plastic frame from the dollar store. My frame is approximately 3 x 2.25 inches. I removed the frame stand from the back of the frame so that I could attach the magnet. I removed the glass. I originally planned to put the glass back into the frame after it was wrapped, but the fabric added just enough bulk that I couldn't get the glass to fit. So actually, I broke the glass trying to force it back into the frame. Oops.

I cut my fabric into thin strips (1/2 inch wide) and used those strips to cover the frame. I added a small twist rose to one corner as well. The embroidery is done on solid gray to coordinate with the frame itself.

I have two more frames that are already covered in fabric, but I still need to do the embroidery. When I finish, I'll post the trio all together.
