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

fabricatedframes.com washable sewn fabric picture frames, brooch pin jewelry use Thermoweb fabric adhesive fusible web exclusively

http://www.thermowebonline.com/k/business-partners fabricatedframes.com is still a #business #partner of #thermowebonline @thermoweb #Ultrahold #HeatNBond #FeatherLite #FabricFuse #epatterns #fabric #crafts

Last fiscal “quarter”, 4th quarter 2013, I became a business partner with Thermowebonline.com, the craft notions company that makes fabric adhesive, it’s a fusible web, iron on, paper backed, acid free Ultrahold Heat N Bond, Featherlite, Heat N Bond Lite, and Fabric Fuse. I have used Ultrahold, the acid free fabric adhesive fusible web of their’s since 2000, since I invented my fabric picture frames for photos and art. I started using Thermoweb on my non washable fabric picture frames, where I had mat board parts covered with fabric and Thermoweb, hot glue, and easel hinges and hangers, pressed in with a hinge and hanger press.

Shortly before the press broke, I invented a way to make the frames without using the easel hinges and hangers, using fabric, still using Thermoweb, ribbon, mat board, hot glue – this time, I separated the mat board strut leg into 2 pieces, but still used the Thermoweb in the same way, only where the strut leg was split in two, that is where I ironed both Thermoweb fused fabric pieces on either side together, making a hinge, and just added ribbon to the bottom of the strut leg, and connected it to the fabric covered easel back, and IT WORKED!

Now, how to make the fabric photo frame washable and sewn? I went back to sewing, I tried a few ways, and finally nailed it, and invented the washable, sewn, fabric picture frame. Still using Thermoweb ironed on, fused to the back of the fabric panel parts, the Thermoweb fabric adhesive UItrahold acted as the patterns, the panel parts, with fabric fused to them, iron down flaps, sewn fused fabric parts, then all finished fabric parts were sewn together, making a pocket in the front for the photo, and it’s acid free, clear sheet protector cut up photo sleeve, to display, a pocket on the back for the easel back board, and a pocket on the back for the strut leg board, to slide in and out easily, with a ribbon connecting the bottom of the strut leg pocket to the easel back panel, the top of the strut leg pocket was sewn to the easel back panel. Button holes were added at the top and side, for hanging the frame, but you can hole punch holes for hanging, for the tiny frames.

NOW …I am in the process of making epatterns, those are the pdf formatted patterns that you print out from your inkjet printer, to make the washable, sewn, fabric picture frames AND …the new washable, NO SEW, fabric picture frames, for crafters, quilters, artists, even kids to make – great for people who don’t know how to use a sewing machine. And again, I am still using Thermoweb Ultrahold Heat N Bond fabric adhesive fusible web, as the patterns for all of the panel parts. These frames are REALLY easy to make, with the exception of the countless holes that you’ll have to hole punch with a quality craft store hole puncher, or pop out with a pair of embroidery scissors – it’s not hard, it’s just time consuming, but WELL WORTH IT! And they wash up great! I have a video on my youtube.com channel at youtube.com/user/fabricatedframesCom , showing how they are washed, it is SO simple to make, and take care of them!

Everything is incredibly easy to cut, easy to buy, INEXPENSIVE to buy as long as you buy as you go, little by little using 40% or 50% off coupons from Michaels, AC Moore, Joann’s, or any fabric, art supply, or craft store! You may even have some of the tools needed. Everything you need is in the epatterns, formatted to print on printer paper, and some of the epatterns have my art formatted to the pattern part, to print onto June Tailor or Printed Treasures WASHABLE inkjet printer fabric sheets. I give you photo AND text step by step instructions, the tool list, a list of how much of the fabric, inkjet fabric, Thermoweb, ribbon, mat board, sheet protector, and thread to buy, per size craft, I break it down easily, there is a legend for all of the parts you’ll be making with graphic thumbnails of what each part and supply looks like, all the patterns true to size -except for the frame for the 8×10″ photo, it’s too big to fit and print on paper, so I give a graphic layout with dimensions and measurements to go by. All of my epatterns are $1, or $5, depending on how many crafts are in the epattern.

I try to keep it economical, because some craft supplies and notions, like the inkjet fabric, and some scissors aren’t as inexpensive as other supplies and tools. Rotary cutting mats are great, and you can get them for under $25, but a cutting board can do the trick until you get one. Rotary fabric cutters, that look like pizza cutters but are for fabric, are up there in price, so you can buy fabric scissors and embroidery scissors – I got my Gingher embroidery scissors for $5 with a Michael’s coupon, and still have them now. You can use a regular household iron CAREFULLY using the point part of it to iron your fabric flaps over onto the back fusing to the Thermoweb, but if you can swing it, get a mini iron for under $25 with a store coupon.

Everything else is pretty inexpensive, hot glue sticks, $3 – $4 low temp glue gun, ruler, pencil or pen, fabric scissors, roll of thread, I use Gutermann’s Toldi Lock, get under 1 foot of 3/8″ to 1 1/2″ ribbon (For the washable, NO SEW, fabric picture frames, you’ll also use the cheap, skinny 1/16″ ribbon, about 2-3 yards of it, or a roll, 2 rolls for the frame for the 8×10″- you’ll use that ribbon to thread through the holes that you’ll make in the 4 fabric adhesive fused fabric panel parts in the middle of the frame structure, with the exception of the front panel, and easel back panel, but you will need 3 holes on the easel back panel, and through at least 2 – 4 strut panels that make up the stut pocket to connect the top of the strut pocket to the back)

YES, I found a way to use that skinny ribbon bolt from the craft store!

The fabric is subjective, and can cost as little as $1 up to hundreds of $’s, depending on what you want to go with, as the more expensive fabric is fireproofed, goes through a rub tensil test, colorfast, dry clean – I’d use that only on the front, easel back panel, and front panel of the strut pocket – the rest of the parts, you can use less expensive, quality, thinner fabric in the fiber type that is consistant with the more expensive fabric that you decided on. I say thinner fabric, because you want to easily be able to sew or poke through the holes of the inside panels, so just find a coordinating pattern or solid colored coordinating THINNER weight fabric in the same fiber family of your fabric, for those parts.

Or you could upcycle or recycle fabric or a piece of clothing that you already have. A customer, who is close friends with President Bill and Hillary Clinton, sent me her late husband’s neckties, and I turned them into washable, sewn, necktie frames for 5×7″ photos, and she put a picture of her late husband next to President Clinton, in all 15 of the frames, and had President Clinton sign the photos that went in them! She gave them as Christmas gifts to her family.

You can also make favors, place card frames, or gifts with these frames for wedding receptions, showers, or events! I’ve made up hundreds for receptions and showers!

This is a winner of a craft project to make! I guarantee it!

Kristie Hubler and fabricatedframes.com - what I do, as an artist, as a product designer, using fabric, as crafts

Kristie Hubler and fabricatedframes.com - what I do, as an artist, as a product designer, using fabric, as crafts
I love what I do, and this gives you the lowdown on what I do, and how I do it!

I design, make, and sell
washable, sewn and no sew, fabric:
picture frames
costume jewelry brooch pins, button, badges, etc.
kitchen oven mitts- glove style and house shaped mitts
holiday tree ornaments / door hangers
dog accessories, like t-shirts, jackets, and bellybands for "accidents"
$1 epatterns and $5-10 contact paper patterns available w/ or w/o my art formatted to print onto inkjet fabric

The photo frames have removable easel back and strut leg boards that slide in & out of their pockets, plus pocket for photo and photo sleeve made out of acid free, clear sheet protector from the office supply store, and if you want glass, I can get that cut to the photo's size - they come in 6 sizes, however I can customize the shape and size of all parts to fit uniquely shaped photos, etc - these are made with fabric, sewn, and are washable. I also can washable, no sew, fabric picture frames, and so can you. I use common, household and craft store supplies, that anyone can get. ePatterns are available for $1 each pdf, you print the patterns, formatted to size, to fit on a standard 8.5" x 11" sheet of paper, then transfer to the supplies that I list, like iron on fusible web, art boards or cardboard, sheet protector - all things that you can get in Joann Fabrics, Michaels, AC Moore, or any fabric or craft store. I use mat board for the easel back and strut leg boards, and you can get them at AC Moore or Michaels, Utrecht, even the Super size Joann Fabrics sell mat board scraps in their framing departments. The fusible web is by Thermoweb, sold at Joann Fabrics, Michaels, etc., I buy the roll with a coupon, you can use Ultrahold, which is acid free, or Featherlite- they are used as your patterns, and give strength and structure to you finished parts that you sew or glue together, and they're so easy to work with. For the no sew, washable, fabric picture frames, I use a good, quality hole puncher, or you can use a pair of sharp, pointy embroidery scissors to make holes marked, just follow the instructions on the patterns in the epatterns, on where to place the holes, because you will lace that skinny, 1/16" ribbon through the holes to join 2 of the finished parts, that will allow you to have a pocket in the front for the photo and it's clear sleeve, and this will also allow you to join 1 of these parts to the back panel, to allow for your easel back board to slide in and out. Then you can use hot glue, or scrapbook tape to join the finished parts, if you don't have, can't, or want to sew it all.

Costume jewelry, accessory, washable, sewn, fabric brooches / buttons / badges are washable, have a back panel w/ 1 or 2 holes for military clutch or bar pinback to stay in place, front and back panel make pocket for pin back to slide in and out of. Art can be printed on inkjet fabric, handpainted, beaded, or printed using Spoonflower.com fabric printing services. ePattern pdf patterns are available for $1 each, to make your own, printing them on only 1 sheet of 8.5" x 11" inkjet fabric, with instructions on that sheet, and minimal extra supplies are needed, just 6x9" adhesive, paper backed, fusible web, coordinating thread, a good quality hole puncher, an inexpensive pin back, plus 1 sheet of inkjet fabric. If I make the brooches, they cost between $1 to $20 depending on the type of fabric, design, complexity, if any beading is done, etc.

The dog accessories currently are for Yorkies and pugs, but if you have dimensions of your dog's back from neck collar to top of tail, chest and waist circumference, I can make a pattern or possibly epattern with instructions for you to make them yourself.
-dog jackets have sewn velcro closure, for Yorkies and pugs
-bellybands have pockets for pads or cut up diaper cloth, and elastic can be added for an extra charge- for Yorkies and pugs
-t-shirts for Yorkies
-diapers for Yorkshire terriers and pugs
- contact paper patterns $5 mailed, epatterns $1 each
-if you want art / design patterns on a fabric repeat, to cut and sew, you can go to spoonflower.com/profiles/fabricatedframes where I can format the design on the pattern to cut out, because some patterns are way to big to fit printin through your 8.5" x 11" inkjet printer, like the dog accessories, for example, however I can get one made for you for about $20, including printing, and sewing it up.
-for DIY crafters who are dog lovers, if you want the patterns or epatterns, the supplies to make them are all available at Joann Fabrics, Hancock Fabrics, and anywhere that sells knit, dancewear, cotton flannel, denim or bottomweight fabric, and notions.

Oven mitts are the typical regular sized oven mitt gloves 8" wide at widest across, and 10" long from top to cuff band edge. They are lined with ironing board utility fabric and diamond quilted fabric with batting between layers, and have a loop for hanging, and edge banding to finish the cuff. Custom cuff designs can be printed and made. Custom art can be printed and made.

House shaped kitchen mitts have a house shaped base, with a pocket on the front, ironing board utility fabric on the back, diamond quilted fabric with batting inside, on the inside, and custom art can be printed and made for the house shaped base fabric and the pocket design. ePatterns are available for $1 each, pdf download with 4 pages of patterns and instructions, some you can print on 2 sheets of inkjet fabric with my art or design patterns, formatted to size, to just print, cut, and sew, for the front and back of the oven mitt, or house shaped base and front pocket design - that pdf would be 5 pages.

Holiday or Christmas tree ornaments, which could also be used for door hangers, stuffed, or used as sachets. Double sided washable, sewn, fabric ornament, with $1 epatterns that you can print and make yourself, with all sorts of designs and art, printed onto inkjet fabric or printed on Spoonflower.com digital pigment based print fabric services. Just add a ribbon, and use coordinating thread.


Also, I've made zippered covers for scrapbooks and albums, wedding, baby, and event items, photo wallets and dvd/cd wallets with removable clear sleeves velcro'd in, kitchen linens, art and product licensing, interior design services (what I have an associate degree in), premiums, and more!
