We’ve started using felt! This section is the scissor area of the wallet, and the felt is used to create a sheath for the scissors. They will then be secured higher up with some ribbon.
We’ve now started working on the inside of the Lizzie Stitching Wallet, with a couple of lisianthus flowers.
The outside cover of the Lizzie Stitching Wallet is complete, with a pretty mirror effect!
We’ve now filled the central section of the piece we’re working on. This will be the back of the wallet.
We moved on to the two vertical borders which will be the “hinges” of the wallet. They’re a feast of special stitches and threads!
The first panel of the Lizzie stitching wallet is now complete – here are some great pictures of sections 1 & 2 together !!!!
Have you ever accidentally tangled your thread into a knot, and growled in frustration as you end up having to cut and start again…? No need anymore: with this simple trick, it’s actually very easy to untie these awful little knots!
Section 2 has just been released, and here are some super pictures of section 1 !!!!
The result is sufficiently similar that you can use one or the other regardless, but the method is quite different – which one has your vote? If you don’t care very much for French knots, try your hand at Colonial knots!
