Way back in September of last year, I showed you a finished cross stitch bunny
a design by Fido Stitch Studios. At the time of finishing, I simply slipped my aida under a frame for the photo without actually framing it properly. It always looks better to show something framed rather than with raw edges, but a wooden frame wasn’t quite what I had planned.
I can now show you the real finish . . .
Isn’t it amazing how a change of colour totally changes the design? A little bit of patchwork, quilting and binding
To give a 9.5” square that looks like this . . . on the back, a different fabric and ribbons
Ribbons which are there for good reason . . .
And one little fabric tray. I decided on ribbons to tie the corners because this means the tray can be flattened out for easier storage or be hand-washed if it gets dirty. The base of the tray measures approximately 5” square – it’s destined to be decorative but useful . . . I’m thinking, on the unit by the front door for car keys & loose change, or something to that effect.
