Yipee, I have a finish!
I started making this Key Tray a couple of weeks ago, it took much longer than I thought to finish, but I did use double the wadding which made the quilting slow going! I used stab stitch, checking how the stitches looked on the back as I stitched each stitch .... I would have liked them to be neater!
|This is the back .... and I don't think it looks too bad!|
I used a tutorial a blogging friend recommended which you can read about
|I used safety pins for basting ..... I'm sure they were curved when I bought|
them ..... but I think they've been used too much, as they aren't now!
|I stitched around plastic templates I had made for |
some other stitching project.
|Using DMC embroidery thread|
and, yipee, it's in use!
Hope you are having a great weekend, and that you have time to visit some of the other stitchers over at CRAZY MOM QUILTS - "FINISH IT UP FRIDAY"*
