*This is a review of Hoop-Frames and Two-sided Mini Frames from Easy Street Crafts. We were not paid for this review however we were given the products reviewed*
A little while ago we received an email from Bruna at Easy Street Crafts saying “Hey Stitch People, a ton of people have been using our frames with your patterns, want to see how cute they look?”. I’m paraphrasing there but our literal first thought was “Heck yes!”.
Just a week later a package arrived at our door and we eagerly ripped open the package. We were expecting one or two frames to take a look at but instead, the box exploded forth a huge variety of options! First plus 😉
Easy Street Crafts carry two types of frames; Hoop-Frames and Sweet Suspensions: Two-sided Mini Frames.
If you have been stitching for a while, no doubt you’re familiar with embroidery hoops. The round wooden hoops with the tightening clasp at the top. They’re great and widely used for framing when you want a kind of home-sweet-home feel. But what about when you’d like a more traditional look to your finished piece but don’t want the hassle of cutting and positioning and mounting your work in a picture frame? Enter in Easy Street Crafts Hoop-Frames!
To use the frames is very simple. First you separate the two pieces, slide your fabric over the bottom half and then push the top half over your fabric and bottom piece. That’s it! It results in a tidy and drum tight surface for which you can cross stitch straight on to.
Not only is this a great framing and stitching option over a typical embroidery hoop but you also have more versatility in the shape of your frame. Hoop frames come in lots of different sizes AND shapes!
They also offer the Hoop frames in several different colors.
Sweet Suspensions: Two-sided Mini Frames
If you already have a frame you’re comfortable stitching with but want a different option for framing mini pieces, take a look at the Two-sided Mini Frames! These frames are obviously adorable but come with a quirky little twist; you can frame on both sides!
These frames come in five different shapes and come with instructions to turn them into little ornaments.
We think they would make lovely bride and groom Stitch People gifts, mobile ornaments or they would look amazing on the Christmas tree!
You can find out more about both of Easy Street Crafts frame options and order a set for yourself at easystreetcrafts.com.
