I love christmas so thought before we start our christmas stitching here is a guide to one sort of finishing. I dont know about you but sometimes after I have stitched something I like, I dont quite know what to do with it.
I personally don’t think the Just Cross Stitch ornie magazine is very clear with their finishing instructions for ‘newbies’ so I thought I’d make one up myself to help people out that haven’t done this type of finishing before – and show just how simple it is 🙂
This will also hopefully kickstart me into preparing a few more tutorials in the upcoming months … just need to get some stitching finished so I have some smaller things to finish! LOL. Anyway, without further ado, here’s the latest tutorial – hope it will be useful to someone 🙂
CHRISTMAS ORNAMENT TUTORIAL
(The Prairie Schooler finishing style)
- Stitched ornie
- Felt in coordinating colour
- Cardboard (I use mattboard)
- Ribbon for hanger
- Thread for lacing (I use crochet cotton or pearl cotton)
1. Firstly measure your stitched ornie for the size that you want the cardboard to be.
