Hiya. Regarding the prior post, I have no idea how the tiny bit of bleach will affect the floss in years to come. I'm assuming it will be OK since it was just touched lightly, but you never know! By the time it deteriorates, I may be gone. If not, I'll stitch them again on linen. So the correct answer to daredevil or stupid, won't be known for a while. Stitching white after staining is the best practice, but these are 20 years old and I wanted to darken the light green fabric. Removing the stuffing and dunking in cold water would certainly be a good idea, but I'm lazy. Anything other than a full rinse would allow the bleach to seep to the fabric. But if I rinse them, the coffee stain will change too. Actually, taking them apart wouldn't be a bad idea because back then, I didn't use fusible interfacing and the difference between these and my recent finishes is huge. I really prefer the structure and firm feel of the fusible and should do that. Later. And here they are with the others.
All Prairie Schoolers topped with a Mary Beale wreath, rusty stars and bells.
Other than a few sprigs of greenery here and there, I'm done.
Thanks for visiting!
