    Sometimes people don't like to buy big patterns as they're scared by the cost of the framing. Well, I've found this great tutorial by GEEKitty on Imgur that explains step by step how to create a scroll frame out of your works. She used our Epic Potter pattern and all the work just costed $25! All you will need is your stitched piece, fabric for the backing, iron, a sewing machine (no particular skills required, or you can also stitch by hand), a ribbon and two dowels.
