    You can choose any fabric you like but remember that by using a thick one, you might end up with ugly folded corners.
    •Put the empty frame on the fabric and mark its shape, measuring about 3-4cm allowance for each side (depending on your frame's thickness).
    •After cutting out the shape, snip the inside corners to help the fabric turn over the frame.
