I bought 1x3 wood from Menards and cut them to make a frame that was 27 x 39. This is a smaller size than what I have now.
i had found a tutorial on line that called for wood screws. It gave specific numbers and sizes but I couldn't find them. After trying other alternatives, I decided to use # 8- 3inch wood screws to put the frame together. It worked just fine.
I am trying to keep this project, as mine, to learn, and to keep from relying on my husband's time and energies, but, I am still awkward, and he did help hold and pre drill some of the holes.
I reinforced the frame with angle brackets.
After it was together, it was sanded and marked with holes 1 inch apart, across the top and bottom. I marked from the center out in each direction.
It is finished! Here is a rug that I had done on a larger frame. I used the most ugly camouflage fabric, and other unwanted ugly quilting fabric. It just comes out looking like a color. Jo Kramer at jo's country junction used T shirt she had cut up. Any sheets from goodwill would be great, as it would give longer strips.
I have a friend who wants to learn how to do this, and I will be sharing my frame. She wants to use up scraps. and this should definitely make a dent.
