Pretty Little Frame – help!

Good morning!

Today I have decided to do what I do best….start another project when I have so many things I really should be finishing. But I just can’t leave this pretty little frame empty any longer.


I can’t decide what to put in it though! I don’t want to use photos – it lives on my desk in my sewing space so I’d like it to have something sewing related inside. The hearts are only small though, roughly 3″ x 3″. I’m torn between 3 options:

a) three different pretty, floral fabrics (I LOVE floral prints and lots of other things in my room are proof of this)

b) some pale linen or calico embroidered with little motifs, probably different colours and designs in each frame


c) piece together lots of tiny scraps in three different ways and put these inside eg. tiny squares, triangles and hexagons


Which would you choose? Or do you have any other suggestions?

  1. I can’t say I’ve ever tried this, but you could embroider around some of the floral motifs on the fabric you love too and kind of do 2 out of 3 of your choices. Or print out a photo onto some muslin and embroider that. (although you need some supplies to use your inkjet / laser printer for fabric) Cross stitch like loveluciel said would be really cute in there too though. Great thing about frames though, you can always change them up to suit your mood!

    1. I do like that I can change them around actually, I’ll probably end up making a selection so I can rotate them! I found some little sewing motifs on Pinterest that I will probably copy onto some plain fabric and embroider over in bright colours. I like the idea of embroidering the floral fabric too though! Maybe I’ll see what fabric I can find….most of the floral ones I have tend to be very small prints so I’d need to experiment to see what sort of embroidery would look best. So many options! Thank you x
