I've kept you in suspense long enough.
Here is the experimental finish I was working on and mentioned in my previous post.
The design is by 123 Citrouille and I used the DMC colours called for. The backing is a wicker style coaster that has a mesh cloth centre. I cut out card to match the centre circle and covered with fabric which I then attached to the coaster. You cant see through from the back which is handy. I then mounted my stitching on to card also and then mounted this onto the fabric circle, it is then trimmed with chenille and I also found a lovely trim to place around the fabric circle. When attaching this altogether I also sandwiched in the white ribbon and made a bow at the top for a hanger. The little silver heart charm just adds a touch of bling to the base of the ribbon.
I would love to hear your feedback.
Until next time, happy stitching
