Here are a few that I have tried so far:
Using embroidery hoops as frames for stitching and patterned fabric. I have had some old embroidery, stitched by my Great Grandma Ida and her mother, which were in the form of tea towels. I did use them for a bit but that felt wrong. You never know when a hubby or kid will stain them or damage them forever. But since the designs were stitched on the corners, it was hard to just frame them. Well, I saw on Pinterest about framing fabric this way, so I tried it out for these. The hardest part for me was cutting the fabric. Once it was done...that was it. Very hard. But I am pleased with the look. I have a few more to put up. These are currently hanging in my daughter's room, right next to a quilt that my Great Grandma Ida made as well. With embroidered panels. So it all ties in nicely!
