I have a really quick share today.
Instead of cutting the felt inner with pinking shears, I machined a pretty scalloped stitch down the edges, using a pink rayon thread (40wt Wonderfil), and trimmed the excess fabric away. Another decorative stitch was used to sew the felt inner to the cotton lining.
The ribbon tie was machine stitched to the centre of the cover.
The cover took the longest to make - all that hand stitching - but once that was done it just took minutes to complete. I'm planning to make a few more but I won't be doing hand embroidery - giving my hands a rest - instead I'll use some of the many decorative stitches on my sewing machine. In the meantime, this one will take pride of place in my embroidery box.
Take care and stay safe everyone.
And Happy Crafting,
