How To Frame Your Crochet Art

I got to thinking about last weeks post and realized I didn’t give a step by step “how-to” for framing your own work. So this week, with the help of my daughter Maeghan, we put together a quick guide for framing your work.
Step one:
Block the work that’s going to be framed.
Blocking will allow the work to maintain it’s shape.
I used a paper towel between the doily and the cardboard to keep it from leeching any of the ink off the box. You don’t have to have expensive mats or special equipment for blocking. As you can see I used a cardboard box that we got from Sam’s Club and some T-pins from Hobby Lobby. You can use regular sewing pins but they might rust, so I highly recommend getting the stainless steel. They were about $3 for 50 pins. If you don’t have a cardboard box like this one, use the non-greasy side of a pizza box, a stack of 2 or 3 towels, or a kids’ foam play-mat and you will get the same results.
