Lining A Open Background Piece: The Movie

Like the Nashville Needlepointer, I like to line canvases with open background stitching with fabric. It's easy to do and can be stitched by hand if you don't have a sewing machine.

I usually choose gold lamé but sometimes I go for silver.  Take your finished piece to a fabric shop like Joann's and hold it over various colors.  You never know which one will work best with your colors but that subtle sparkle you get from lamé adds a lot to your design.
