For my Phat Quarter - Blinded by Science swap embroidery, I finished it by stretching it or mounting it on a canvas. I had never done it before so thought I would give it a try. It was really easy and I think it might be my new favorite way to display embroidery.
What you need:
1. Staple gun
2. any size canvas
|Blank 8x10 canvas|
I first laid my embroidery on top of the canvas and did my best to center it.
Then flip it over and staple the center of each side, pulling the fabric tight.
Work your way around the canvas stapling towards the corners.
To do the corners, I wrapped the each corner like wrapping a present and stapled it down. It is a little bulky in the back, but not as bad as I thought it would be. I am sure the more I do it the better I will get.
