3 Little Words - Lizzie Kate




Hello Peeps!!

I have been busy stitching away on a small secret project.
A small RAK for Chris from Always Smiling

oOo 


Here it is, all nicely packed thank to Ikea!

oOo


I have stitched
3 Little Words from Lizzie Kate,
the latest of her small freebie that you can find here


Recto


My model was worked on Zweigart aida fabric
cream colour, 14 count
2 over 1, using DMC keyed cotton


Verso


Finished off as a pinkeep using fabric, ribbon & pins from my stash


oOo


RAK also included my gently used
Tralala chart La Forêt Enchantee Printemps
and a sweet little Belle & Boo postcard


Toodles,
Mii

  38. What a gorgeous finish Mii and what a sweet & thoughtful parcel to recieve in the mail! A couple of quick questions, do you sew your ric rac round the edges or glue it? And do you have any go to places for tutorials on finishing smalls? I have a bunch of smalls to stitch which I would like to be a bit more adventurous in finishing them than I normally am! Hope you don't mind me asking you but I love the various finishes you come up with :-) Have a lovely week,
    Helen x

    1. Thanks Helen!
      I don't sew or glue my trims. They only stay together thanks to the pins at the top!
      I have a glue gun but find it more messy than actually doing the job of gluing :)
      I advice you to visit http://tts-learntofinish.blogspot.co.uk/. This is the best website for tutorials to learn & venture to make some lovely finishes. Her tuto are fantastic & this is where I've been reading to learn a few things for my finishes.
      You just have to be brave with the first one and your worries will soon go away & make place for creativity :) Have fun! x
