Red bat – stretching and mounting the embroidery

I want to get this framed, but I’ll mount it onto card myself before taking it to the framer.  No surprises here but the usual routine.

Damp stretching:

Cutting some mount board to the right size (20cm x 20cm, or 8″ x 8″):

Sticking some wadding to it with 505 fabric spray glue:

Stretching the embroidery round it and lacing the back (complete with name tape):


My usual picture framer is on holiday at the moment so I won’t be able to get it framed for a couple of weeks, but once he’s done it I’ll show you how it turned out.
