Hi everyone, I have been completing a couple of unfinished objects this week, the first one is this little cross stitch gift set, I only had the little oblong pillow to finish, it has been sitting in my unfinished pile for quite a while now.
I have made this set a few times for friends but I wanted one for myself as I love the design, the first was this set here where you can also see a matching gift box that I designed. If you check out my finishing tutorials blog you can see the biscornu tutorial showing how to stitch it together.
The pattern is from this blog here I could not find the pattern on this Biscornu page but if you email the blog owner I am sure she will send it to you. She has lots of patterns in the freebie section, if you don't know how to translate the page just look for Grilles Gratuite in the sidebar listings to locate the free patterns section.
I painted two coats of acrylic paint on the little wooden basket, you can buy these at any good craft store.
Here is the basket before I painted it
I am off to finish some more stitching in my unfinished objects stash!
Until next time - Happy Stitching....................
