Back in August Nicki had a pinkeep class. Its taken me this long to finally get around to making my pinkeeps. The class was a great help in doing it.
The first one I made was Full of Hope, Mary Kathryn’s first design.
The next pinkeep completed a set of smalls I made for my mother.
There was another pinkeep, but its for an exchange! Thank you for the wonderful class Nicki.
Thank you Nicki for a great class!
Here is my first pinkeep! Thanks so much for the class Nicki! Have loved seeing other peoples pinkeeps too 🙂
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.
I made this pinkeep for my boyfriends birthday today. Your class was wonderful. It is a very easy way to finish projects and it looks so nice. Thanks a lot.
I´ve forgotten to say who has the copyright: the design is taken from Cross Stitch Crazy Nr. 36!
This is my first attempt at a pinkeep finish, and my first time following one of the classes here – it won’t be the last time I do either, either :o)
I was very pleased at how the finished article came out – the picture isn’t very good because it’s a scan (my camera charger is missing!). In “real life” the edges are much more crisp!
I used cream dupion as the backing fabric, foamcore for the stiffening, a pale pink lace for the edging, and cream, pale green, silver and some more of the lace for the extravagant bow! I omitted the pins because I have a small niece who is fascinated by my basket of “smalls” – so maybe in eight or nine years I can finish this as intended!
Here is my contribution to the weekend pinkeep class. I finished Joy of My Heart, a design from Lori Birmingham. I’m still not sure if the bow on the corner works but it’s only stuck in with a pin so of course I can change it. 🙂 Thanks Nicki so much of posting this lesson. Mine turned out great.
