After that I decided where I would position the piece on a gallery wrapped frame (from Dick Blick) that was 24" x 36". I like the gallery wrapped frame because the canvas acts as a liner for the artwork stretched around it. It was also much cheaper, for some reason, than buying frames with no canvas attached. I began the task of stapling the piece on the back side from the centers out to the sides. I carefully wrapped the corners and stapled them in place.
After stapling the felted textile onto the back of the gallery wrapped frame, I made a back for it and pinned it in place. I did this by drawing around the frame with a pencil onto some heavy fusible stabilizer, cut it out, and fused it onto a piece of woven twill in a coordinating color. I cut the twill 1/2 inch larger than the stabilizer and turned the edges under. Here is a picture of the whole thing pinned in place on the back side.
