Finished. What to do now? Maybe frame this one? Stuff and smash? Another pouch? Depends on my mood at that time. I did use darker shades of recommended floss and changed the very light ones to another color.
You can see a light aging with a few spots. I didn't want the overall light mist of dye that I most times do, preferred a more distinct mottling. So I changed the spray to medium and then added a few larger drops of dye here and there.
R&R repro charts have every little detail of the original but as I mentioned before, I did full stitches everywhere. I did add the knots and oddities including a few repair stitches. Considered clipping the linen thread beneath to make it a true repair but didn't.
For now, it will hang by pins on the wall, but for its size, I am considering another pouch to hang with Rosanna. An advantage of a pouch finish like that is the option to slip batting inside, close the top, maybe shorten the strap, and it can become a small hanging pillow.
I think my next project will be a tiny. I missed the sale at Pineberry Lane so I decided to make my own boxes and tiny. I have tons of paper that I thankfully did not toss with the other craft items, and still have very small boxes that I rescued from the burning pile yesterday. For the first time in a long while, I am excited about doing something different and have a few ideas.
Hope March is a good month for all.
Thanks for visiting.
