Finished using your instructions. Added two layers of batting between the card and then ladder stitched the two covered card together. Glued a piece of cording I had and long silver headed pins. It is a free French design called Hornbook’s stitcher from A Mon Ami Pierre.
Finished an ornament sized tie on pillow and loved the instructions. Used a Homespun Elegance design for the stitched piece. The color of the pillow and ribbon are dark green but because of the background is showing more blue.
Just want to add these have been sitting around unfinished for a long time. Thanks for the blog which inspired me to finish them. Now about 100 to go. The round ornament uses the metal finishing forms, but I only used one half and felt on the back.
