A Thank You Gift for Kim
Not knowing what Kim might like, I decided to take a look at some of her work. The ornament Kim created for this exchange was a cute cross-stitch pattern of a witch. (It is the fourth photo in THIS post on her blog.) So, I found this witch silhouette amongst my fabric stash and decided it would be perfect.
Sweet Bee Buzzings, I get better at hiding the inside stitches from sewing the frame in. (After following all of the directions on the tutorial, I thread a size 26 tapestry needle with a strand of size 5 perle cotton and work my way across the frame one last time to add a seed bead over each hole in the frame.)
Imagine my delight when Kim mentioned her desire to look up the tutorial to make one of these coin purses in a comment on my blog. She had no idea one was already on its way to greet her. I hope she likes it and was able to use it between the time she received it and Halloween!
Thanks for stopping by!
