fabricatedframes.com Framed picture frame sewing tutorial will be in Sew It ...Today magazine, Aug/Sept 2014 issue, issue 11, out on 6/24/14

The tutorial for the 2 washable, sewn, fabric picture frames are being featured in their August / September 2014 issue, issue 11, out on newsstands, such as Barnes and Noble, Joann Fabrics, and where ever they sell sewing, quilting, and crafts magazines, available to pick up for $3.99 on June 24th! The article is titled, "Framed", and will showcase on pages 56 to 59. Here is the cover of the issue that I will be in, so that you can look out for it:

A couple of months ago, I was asked by Sew It ...Today magazine to take fabric sent from Fabric Editions, and turn the yard of each of the 2 patterns sent into washable, sewn, fabric picture frames. I used their fabric from "Fabric Loft - Trapeze" cotton / canvas collection. The patterns are called Chevron and Large Medallions. I made 1 frame for a 5x7" photo, 8x10" overall size, out of the Large Medallions pattern, and 1 frame for an 8x10" photo, 10x12" overall, out of the Chevron pattern.

Both frames have a strut leg pocket and easel back pocket on the back, joined by ribbon at the bottom right of both panels, to allow for the frame to stand upright on a table or shelf. Both pockets have mat board parts slightly smaller, that slide in and out, and help give form to the frames, as well as allow for the frames to stand upright. On the front of the frame is a pocket for the photo and it's protective photo sleeve, which is cut from an acid free, clear sheet protector, which you can find at any office supply store, Target, Walmart, Walgreens, etc. Just make sure that it is clear, not translucent clear with a tooth, just smooth absolutely clear, and that the words acid free are on the packaging.

I also use Thermoweb fusible web, as the patterns of all of the parts of the frame. This is a peel away paper backed, iron on, fabric adhesive, that I cut to the size, and these pieces get ironed on to 6 out of 10 of the slightly fabric panel pieces. I use the acid free Ultrahold Heat N Bond type, but the President of Thermoweb suggested that I should use either the Heat N Bond Lite or Featherlite types. If a crafter / sewist / seamstress / quilter / designer decides to use the Ultrahold type, which I have used for 14 years, and have sewn with for 9 of the 14 years in my frame projects / products, just lower the stitch length to 3, and go slowly around your pieces. If you want, you can slowly and neatly go around your first stitch line another time. Use a denim weight sewing machine needle. Thermoweb also offers a brand new product PERFECT for this frame project, called "EZ Print" sheets, available here. They are pre-cut, double paper sided Heat N Bond Lite and Featherlite fusible web, cut to 8 1/2" x 11", that you can run the patterns directly onto the EZ Print sheets, instead of printing out the patterns onto inkjet printer paper, and then transferring the lines onto the Thermoweb, sold by the yard or on a 5 yard roll. The 10 sheet pack costs $7.99, and one pack is perfect for each size picture frame. OR you can buy it by the 5 yard roll for as little as $5 from Michaels, $10 per 5 yard roll, minus a Michaels 50% off store coupon, which can make it economical, if you do it that way. Your choice. FabricatedFrames.com is a featured partner of Thermoweb.

This fabric is available at Target.com, here and here, and in stores, also in other big box retailers I believe, I think Walmart, too. The patterns are called Chevron and Large Medallions. You can buy them for $9.99 each yard package bundled, each are 44" wide by the 36" yard. I managed to get 1 large frame from each yard of fabric, even with matching the patterns as close as possible, on all panels. It can be done lol :D

You can also make oven mitts, potholders, even bellybands for all kinds of dogs. The frames are a great project for older tweens and teens who want to sew picture frames for friends and family.

The washable, fabric picture frame sewing patterns are also available as printables at fabricatedframes.com and Craftsy.com for $1 each size frame or $5 for a 6 sizes combined in one printable pdf. All printable patterns come with photo & text step by step instructions, supply list, tool list, what everthing looks like that you'll need, and all patterns for all parts.

Craftsy printables - $1 & $5 printable patterns for sewing crafts by Kristie Hubler

Craftsy is a great place to buy pdf patterns, those printable patterns that you can print out, and use over and over again.
My pdf patterns, once you buy them, are downloaded directly from Craftsy, and are affordable at $1 & $5, depending on how much you get in each pattern.

My patterns can be printed onto:
inkjet printer paper for just the patterns themselves, like this image below, to be printed on paper
which are then transferred onto Thermoweb Ultrahold acid free or Featherlite / Heat N Bond Lite fusible web, a paper backed, peel away adhesive that you iron onto the backs of your fabric pieces and use as a pattern for the finished fabric parts. Ultrahold and Heat N Bond Lite are available here, or in Michaels for $5 after you use their 50% store coupon, or AC Moore for the 5 yard roll. Available at Joann's by the yard $1.99 before using store coupons or if on sale.
some can be printed onto washable inkjet printer fabric sheets by June Tailor shown here:

Shown below is the $5 printable pattern for making 6 sizes of washable, sewn, fabric picture frames

and some can be directly printed onto Thermoweb EZ Print sheets, that are 8 1/2" x 11" fusible web, an fabric adhesive substrate, with peel away paper backing that you iron the backs of your fabric pieces and use as a pattern for the finished fabric parts. EZ print sheets are $7.99 for 10 sheets available here.

Some patterns you will print onto both inkjet paper AND washable inkjet printer fabric sheets, like the Paris / Eiffel Tower inspired art on six washable sewing crafts, where you would need 9 washable inkjet printer fabric sheets (buy the 10 pack here or cheaper at Joann Fabric using their 50% off store coupon or on sale as shown here for $12.49 for a 10 pack) to make: a picture frame for a 5x7" photo, 2 brooches - both with removable parts allowing for the frame AND 2 brooches to be washable - kitchen oven mitt
house shaped potholder
plus an ornament, which can be used to decorate a tree, hang on a wall, hang on a door knob, or attach it to a gift as a decorative embellishment. You can buy the the fabric sheets at June Tailor or go to Joann Fabric and buy them in the 3 pack, 10 pack, ans 25 pack, using Joann Fabric store coupons to save money. Below is the image with supply and tool list to make the 6 Paris inspired sewing crafts:
I am thinking about selling my art to print onto cardstock for cards or to print 8x10 versions for frames, as printables.

I keep everything fairly cheap because I know crafters, sewists, seamstresses, designers, and quilters are having to spend money on tools and extra supplies, so I keep the patterns cheap, and I also advice how to buy the tools and supplies as cheap as possible, so you get more bang for your buck, plus I'm promoting the craft, fabric, and sewing, vendors / suppliers that I use in the process.

art by artist Kristie Hubler on products at Cafepress.com/profile/kristiehublerscafepress, Zazzle.com/fabricatedframes, spoonflower.com/profiles/fabricatedframes, and to print onto inkjet printer fabric as crafts, epatterns



Hi my name is Kristie Hubler, and I am an artist, product designer, fabric / surface designer, & inventor. I would describe my art as girly, out of the box …but I’ve created some concepts for guys, when the time is called upon to do so lol

I have soft hand to my work, I love bold color though. My influences are, well, without question, Georges Seurat, for one, not just Parisian themes and the aesthetics of art in general, but the mechanics of the techniques in art, and how we see the world differently through new movements, new mediums. I am enticed by flowers and berries, love texture, round, curvy elements, abstract squiggles & shapes, romantic notions, feeling. My characters, animals, humans, and creatures are said to be more animated. I love architectural features, I have an associate degree in interior design, love perspective renderings.

As the author of “Fabricated Frames: Instructions On Making Fabric Picture Frames”, and owner of fabricatedframes.com , available at lulu.com/spotlight/fabricatedframes and http://www.amazon.com/Fabricated-Frames-Instructions-Making-Fabric/dp/0557327792 , I have created a way to get my art onto fabric crafts, home decor, gifts, jewelry, accessories, kitchen textiles, & more, using June Tailor and Printed Treasures inkjet fabric sheet, and Thermoweb fusible web, fabric adhesive. I have invented a way to make fabric picture frames washable, sewn – soon to be no sew, washable crafts, where the structure is multiple fabric panels fused with inexpensive fabric adhesive by Thermoweb, used as patterns and gives structure to the frames, sewn together ( no sew projects soon), ribbon, thread, mat board for slide out boards for the easel back and strut leg boards, and an office supply, acid free, clear sheet protector, that gets cut to the size of the photo and used as the protective photo sleeve. I have also invented a washable, sewn, or no sew, fabric costume jewelry brooch pin, with a pocket for the removable pin back, and a back panel with 2 holes that holds the pin mechanisms in place. To top that, I then invented a house shaped oven mitt / pot holder, with a pocket in the front, ironing board fabric on the back, my art can be printed on inkjet fabric sheets, and seam binding edges the outside of the mitt, inside there is quilted fabric with batting between layers, and these pot holder trivets, along with the oven mitt gloves are very insulated.

I have sold my art on products, for sale on cafepress.com and zazzle.com -

art on area rugs, bedding, curtains, shower curtains, picture frames, oven mitts & pot holders, scarves, diaper bags, bags, 70″ round tablecloths, wine stoppers, Men’s slip-on shoes, neck ties, tie clips, pillows, money clips, jewelry,serving trays, Samsung 4 and other electronic cases and sleeves, flip flops, & more at
