Make 8 paper or washable, sew, or no sew, fabric 8 photo frame sizes, 2 smallest frames are convertible frame pin ornaments
This group of patterns is my baby, my special one, that allows crafters to make washable fabric frames, even frames from other substrates / surfaces, inexpensively, using supplies and tools from the craft store!
This download can offer a different kind of frame, even a different type of easel frame card, in that the frames are actual, tabletop & wall hanging picture frames, with easel strut legs that pitch out, 2 photo frame sizes have strut legs and pin backs that can be removable! You can display your message inside, as a card!
You can use paper card stock sheets, letter size, or transfer the patterns to wallpaper, scrapbook paper, construction paper, vinyl, Cricut printable vinyl, leather, sticker paper, or print the pattern pages directly onto Therm o Web HeatnBond, using your inkjet printer, and iron to the back of fabric! The fabric frames are made to be washable!
Not only can you make these with fabric and sew the outer edges of the panels together, but you make these without sewing the panels, and still be washable frames, as well, you can make these frames out of paper card stock!
For washable, sewn, fabric frames, you can print the pattern pages directly onto Therm o Web HeatnBond Lite or Featherlite, cut to letter size, which are sewing machine needle friendly fabric adhesive interfacing that is paper backed and irons onto the back of fabric, using your inkjet printer! You can print the patterns onto Ultrahold, but use a heavy duty machine needle, and longer stitch lengths, like length 3 or 4.
For washable, no sew, frames, you can print the pattern pages directly onto Therm o Web HeatnBond Ultrahold, an acid free, thicker, fabric adhesive interfacing that is paper backed and irons onto the back of fabric, using your inkjet printer! You can also print these patterns onto Cricut printable vinyl sheets, transfer to scrapbook paper, wallpaper, and try it on other substrates! You can get HeatnBond Ultrahold, Lite, and Featherlite at Barnyarns and Hobbycraft. Buy a couple of 4.6 meter rolls, 2 or 3 rolls, to do all of the frames, but one roll will suffice, so you can do one frame at a time. One 4.6 meter / five yard roll yields 32 letter size sheets, and that roll will make 2 frames for an 8x10 photo, or 32 of the 2 smallest size frames.

Besides washable, NO SEW, fabric photo frames, these patterns can also be made for paper card stock, for paper photo frames.
For no sew, washable, fabric photo frame, again you can print the patterns onto Ultrahold, an acid free (great for photos), paper back, iron on, fabric adhesive fusible web interfacing, that gets ironed to the back of the fabric panels, and you print the patterns using your inkjet printer. All of the seam allowance flaps, guidelines, lines to cut away excess fabric and Ultrahold once ironed together, circles to hole punch or poke & cut out with craft, sharp, pointy, embroidery like scissors, and box areas to place Velcro / hook & loop with hot glue.
The Ultrahold is made by Therm o Web HeatnBond, sold at Hobbycraft, thermowebonline.com, BarnYarns, Walmart, Michaels.com, & AC Moore, and you'll need the 5 yard or 4.6 meter roll or get that amount by the yard or meter. You can cut the rolls into A4 or 8 1/2" x 11" sheets, up to 32 A4 or 8 1/2" x 11"sheets. If you decide to do one frame size at a time, a frame for an 8x10" photo requires 1/2 roll or 2 1/2 meters or 16 A4 or 8 1/2" x 11" sheets, and the two smallest frame sizes need 1/4 yard or 1/4 meter or 1 A4 or 8 1/2" x 11" sheet each. To do all 7 frames, you will need two 5 yard or 4.6 meters rolls. Printing the Ultrahold patterns makes it so much easier than transferring the pattern lines and markings by hand. I have Youtube video tutorial at http://youtube.com/user/fabricatedframesCom for showing you how to print Ultrahold using an inkjet printer.
For both paper and fabric photo frames, you'll just need card stock or washable, fabric, 2 lengths of ribbon, a hole puncher or pointy embroidery like scissors, fabric or paper scissors, and hot glue & low temp glue gun.
For paper frames, you can laminate the sheet or panels, iron on Therm o Web iron on clear vinyl, decoupage the panels then assemble, or spray a finishing clear coat to keep the ink from smearing. You can also try paper card stock or scrapbook paper first, even wallpaper, then work your way up to using fabric.
fabric 1/4 yard or meter up to 2 yards, from 2 smallest to largest frame
paper 1 to 6 sheets, use larger sheets for the frame for the 8x10" photo which is 10x12", maybe try collage scrap pieces
up to two 1 1/4" or 35mm long metal brooch pin backs for the 2 smallest frames, which convert to brooch pin badge & ornaments
Velcro brand /sew on type hook & loop 6-9" long 3/4" wide, making 2 - 3 sets of strips for each of the smallest frame pin ornaments, the third set of strips is for the closure for the photo pocket opening on top between panels 2 & 3, to hold the photo and sleeve in
cardboard or mat board 1/16" thick, 32x40" or 20x30", or 24x36", patterns provided in download, for removable easel back and strut leg boards, that slide out of their pockets on the back of the frame, use especially for the 4 largest frames, as the 4 smallest don't need the removable easel back & strut leg boards, but patterns are included in case you feel that you need them. Gravity and physics allow for the Ultrahold and fabric panels combined in the 4 smallest frames to hold the frame up while standing, strut leg pitched out, I guess because they are smaller, but the larger four frames require the boards for the frames to stand. I've tested these puppies, and experimented so much, with different size strut legs, and design, so this info will do the trick. Patterns provided for boards.
Clear, acid free, sheet protector pages, cut to the size of the photo. You can find them in packs of 50 sheets, at Walmart, Walgreens, Target, or your local office supply, or even drug stores, just make sure that the package is labeled "acid free". One page will yield up to 12 1 1/2" x 2 1/2" photo sleeves, 10 sleeves for a 2x3" photo, and so on. Use a paper trimmer, and the fold and heat pressed edges for the bottom of the pocket, where the photo will rest between the two sided sleeve. 2 columns, 5 to 6 rows per sheet page.
two lengths of ribbon: one length 1/8" or 3mm wide by 2 feet or 2/3 meter long for the smallest 2 frames, and 7 feet or 2 1/3 meters long for the largest frame for the 8x10" photo - this ribbon connects panels 2 and 3, to make the photo pocket, thread through those panels' circle holes that you will hole punch or cut out.
the other length 9" long or 23cm long by 3/8" or 9mm up to 1 1/2" or 3cm wide - that ribbon is between the layers of strut leg at the bottom right corner, glued in place inside at one end of the ribbon, the other ribbon tail end is either tucked inside a space that you'll leave open on the bottom to the right between the fm (frame middle) and easel back panels, or you will fold the ribbon in twice, glued for both folds, then glue the hook part of Velcro or hook & loop to the side that will attach to the easel back, for the frame pin ornaments, or two smallest sizes, so that the bendable strut leg is removable, with Velcro or hook & loop attaching the top part of the strut leg to the easel back, loop or soft side of Velcro loop attached on the easel back, and harsh or hook part of Velcro on the strut leg and ribbon tail on the bottom right The key to having a pocket for the photo and be a removable photo and sleeve, and be a washable photo frame, is the photo pocket inside the frame.
On panels 2 and 3, the 2nd inside frame front border and frame middle top panel, have 7 holes in a U line, that 1/8" or 3mm wide ribbon is thread through these holes to connect the panels and make the photo pocket.
FABRIC: For the 4 largest, washable, fabric photo frames, you will need the mat board or cardboard removable boards and you will need all 10 Ultrahold printable patterns.
PAPER: For the paper frames, you only need 6 out of the 10 panel patterns, but because they are for printing onto Ultrahold, which is ironed onto the back of the fabric panels, just remember to print those 6 out of 10 in mirror or flipped horizontally / 180 degrees, for those pages, those panels individually print each page, in printer properties. For example, print from page 19 to page 19, for the frame for the 2x3" photo, for example, or whatever panel page that you want printed, for that specific pattern panel. There are 10 panel patterns per frame, however for the paper frames, you only need the top FFB, 2nd inside FFB that connects to FM top, and the easel back pattern facing out (you'll need to reverse or mirror this panel pattern in printer properties, so that the holes are centered on the top and to the left for hanging.
Just remember on both the washable, no sew, fabric, and the paper frames, that the strut leg 90 degree angled bottom is always to the bottom right corner aligned with the bottom right corner of the easel back fabric & Ultrahold panel or board. You can use the pattern panel print outs and try covering mat board or cardboard parts. The strut leg is 2 parts and bendable, because there is a spacer cut out from the printed strut leg Ultrahold patterns, where the fabric will touch each other, with no Ultrahold where that spacer is. The strut leg will have Ultrahold ironed to the back of both panels, and you can iron it onto paper, card stock, leather, wood, with the pattern printed on the paper backing with your inkjet printer, and is fabric adhesive, fabric & Ultrahold fused on both sides with the iron, but the space with Ultrahold spacer cut away and removed, will allow for the fabric on both sides to bend in that area.
The Ultrahold acts like a stabilizer, it allows for the panel to keep rigid and sturdy, straight, edges crisp and sharp, yet it is still flexible. It allows for the frame to stand on a table or shelf, with the ribbons where they are placed, but the larger frames need a little, extra help to help the frame stand with strut leg pitched out, so that's why they need the removable boards that slide out of their pockets.
I know that it may seems long, but I give you everything you need to do these frames, and I have videos on Youtube for how I make my washable, no sew, fabric photo frames, so you can gauge and visualize their design more at http://youtube.com/user/fabricatedframesCom THANK YOU SO MUCH!
