Ever see people using felt in between their work and the Q Snap Frame? It is for a purpose. And it is cheap. One piece of felt cut into quarters can protect your stitches from those sometimes rough edges of your Q Snaps. Also, if you feel like the tension holding your fabric in your Q Snap has become too loose, the extra bulk from the felt helps with that too. You can even go crazy and add two layers if so desire!
- Q Snap
- At least one piece of felt (depends on the size of your frame)
- Scissors (Here I am using pinking shears because I have them)
- Your Cross Stitch Fabric
With your scissors, cut each piece of felt in half. If using pinking shears, pink all around the edges of your felt first.
Since we do not want too much fabric hanging over onto our work, cut your new pieces of fabric again, making them a fourth of your original width. Trim length to size for your Q Snap Frame.
Place cut pieces of fabric in between working fabric and Q Snap. And you are done!
I hope this is helpful to you and happy stitching!
