Basic Skills Necessary:

  • cutting fabric, ironing fabric and paper backed iron on adhesive fusible web patterns, good sewing machine, denim weight machine needles, assembling, pinning, button hole making with zigzag foot (easy)- if you can make a pillow, you can make this, just with a little more care to assembling and pinning back parts, connecting the right parts at the right time

Pattern Description:

Well, the art is of my own doing. It is based on impressionist style art that I created in 2002, and a revised pointillist version in 2011, art inspired by Paris, France, the Eiffel Tower, Seurat the pointillism artist, and the indoor shopping facades inside Paris Las Vegas resort. I then took the saved scan art, and laid it out in fields, inside my structure dimensions for my washable, sewn, fabric picture frame for a 5x7" photo, so that the 3 pattern parts can be printed onto inkjet fabric. Variations of this art are in a collection, and have sold on a 5x7" area rugs, shower curtains, non fabric picture frames, blanket, and more on cafepress.com/profile/KristieHublersCafepress , ornaments, messenger bag, & Keds sneakers at zazzle.com/fabricatedframes

If you love art, if you are a Francophile, you want to remember your trip to Paris or France, you want something unique for your home or to give as a gift, this is for you!

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • for 5x7" photo, measures 8x10" oa., has 1 3/4" frame front border (ffb) around the 4.5"x 6.5" picture window (pw) or area where photo shows through

Materials:

  • 3 inkjet fabric sheets 8.5" x 11" -art fits within 8x10" field for printers that don't have borderless printing- for front of frame, back of frame, and strut leg front panel, fabric for all other panel parts, Thermoweb iron on adhesive Heat N Bond Ultra Hold (acid free) or Featherlite for pattern parts, ribbon, thread, fabric scissors, embroidery scissors (optional, but beneficial), ruler, pencil, sewing machine, denim weight needles, iron, pressing cloth or use freezer paper or the peel back paper of the fusible web, Scotchgard (optional), Firegard (optional fire resistancy spray from Joann Superstores), pins, sheet protector page per frame preferrably acid free for photo sleeve), mat board or card board for easel back and strut leg boards that slide out of their pockets on the back, rotary cutter (optional, beneficial), rotary mat cutter or clean surface that protects your work area, scissors for cutting printer paper patterns that transfer to fusible web as parts, printer, inkjet ink (epattern is in color, but you can print the 3 inkjet fabric patterns laid out with full color ink, the rest you can select to use black ink to save ink)
  • 1 yard of coordinating pattern or solid fabric
  • 1 1/3 yard of Thermoweb Ultrahold or Featherlite adhesive, paper backed, fusible web
  • 1 - 2 small rolls of Gutermann or 1 big roll of Toldi Lock by Gutermann thread
  • 1 foot of ribbon, 1" wide

You Will Also Need:

  • patience, calmness, good eye for making sure corners and lines are straight lol - just make sure you follow which pattern part goes with which- do the 2 frame fronts (where photo shows through) first, put it aside, work on the 2 panels for the frame middle part and sew inside frame front to finished frame middle panel, work on 2 panels for easel back part, put that aside, work on 4 panels that make 2 strut leg panels for strut leg pocket, then attach that to easel back panel, make your holes for hanging, then attach the strut leg pocket to the easel back panel at the top of the leg, making sure the bottom right of the strut leg pocket is aligned with the edge of the bottom right of the easel back panel. Then attached the easel back panel and strut leg pocket combo to the frame fronts and frame middle panel. The key will be in the assembling and sewing of the finished fabric parts sewn together.
  • just make sure that the printer settings match up to the layout of the design patterns, the frame front and easel back panel designs should be 1/4" from the top and both vertical sides, so please check your printer settings, and preview to make sure that they are correctly laid out.
  • tip: use pins to mark the corners of the 3 panel design patterns from the back, to show you where to place your Thermoweb adhesive patterns, to iron down, paper side up, on the back side of the printout fabric.
  • tip: it's better to print with fuller ink cartridges
  • tip: if you use PhotoFabric by the roll, and cut each sheet 8.5x11", don't be surprised if the sheets shrink 1/2" vertically. I had to modify my patterns of all parts 1/4" from the top and bottom, and adjust my measurements. Try June Tailor or Printer Treasures inkjet fabric sheets.
