So last time I posted, the training cross stitch looked like this:
….because, I had ran out of thread in order to finish it!
£3.48 and a little bit of time later….
…and I had finished the stitching, and dissolved the soluble canvas… (icky stuff, but probably less fiddly than waste canvas?)
Then cut out with pinking shears…
Sew the outer and inner bits of felt together (inner bit is also trimmed with pinking shears).
Cross stitched piece sewn to the front…
….and twiddly bits applied.
….and it is done!
