Cross Stitch Tutorial: Protect Your Stitches With Felt When Using A Q Snap Frame

Another Q Snap with Felt Example

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!

Supplies Needed:



Step 1

With your scissors, cut each piece of felt in half.  If using pinking shears, pink all around the edges of your felt first.

Step 3

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!
