SBQ and a little finish!
Yes, it's that time again! From http://blondelibrarian.net/stitching/archives/2006/12/sbq-finishing/ this week's SBQ was suggested by Carol (http://carolsxsblog.blogspot.com/)and is:
Do you have any good internet links to tutorials for your favoritefinishing techniques that you would like to share?
I have found many good tutorials on-line. For the most part I finish ornaments with my sewing machine since it's quite fast and easy. This year I have found some other websites that have intersting finishing techniques that I've yet to try but really want to at some point:
- an interesting tutorial on how to do ribbon ruching
- how to make a no sew cube with a needlework design
- how to make a flat fold
I also dug up some instructions given to me quite a while ago about how to make tuck-away pillows that I really want to try in the next little bit. It seems simple enough, but then I haven't actually sat down and tried it yet. I would share these instructions, but I'm not the copyright holder so can't share them. Maybe after I try it I'll write my own and post them. We'll see...
In the finishing department - I finished stitching my youngest DS' ornament for this year. It's from Dragon Dreams and was in the 2004 JCS ornament issue. Bryce is quite happy with his ornie!
