all things stitching, sewing, embroidery, punch needle
I'm am generally not an "out of the box" type of thinker when it comes to finishing off my stitching, but every now and then I get inspired. I was working on this Halloween design, by Tiny Modernist, and while I was at work I passed by some unfinished Halloween decorations, and there was a pumpkin. They had all different shapes, and the back opens so you can put things in it, like a shadow box. I thought it would be perfect for the pumpkin I was working on. I pinned my fabric around acid free foam core, painted the shadow box, added a cute bat, and I have a new Halloween decoration!
I make cross stitched jewelry, and my niece saw my panda necklace, and asked if I could make one for her. I told her I would do it for her birthday, which is at the end of September. I found the panda earrings to go with it on Amazon. Really cute for a little one turning 8!
The original chart, from OhMyStitches on Etsy, said "stay home and craft," but I changed it to better suite me.
Is there anything I can do to protect the inside of the stitch job? Like an adhesive layer?
I time how long I work on a WIP. My biggest one here reached the 600 mark. So happy with how it looks already PATTERN: the Reader from cross stitch collectibles
