Just a little bit chuffed...

... that I have finished my ornie and it looks almost professional -lol!!! Yup, after closely following a tutorial from Daffycat (thank you!!!) (oh and with a slight panic about interfacing - cough),

Front:


Back:

Check out this invisible stitching - yay!!!:




(although my start and the end of the row need a bit more practice).

Off to have a glass of wine to celebrate - lol.

Thanks for looking

  4. wooo hooo well done .. another tip is to stitch your first stitch in the folded over fabric then come up and out at the top of the fold on the right side then start your ladder stitch ... when you get to the end weave your thread through the stitches (like finishing a biscornu ) and come up through the fold and snip carefully and then the tail disappears and is safe :) hope that makes sense ..lol :) love mouse xxxx
