You maybe remember that we added some padding and I don’t really like the idea of “free” padding which can move – therefore lets do some finishing to restrict this freedom 😉
Ok, I admit it, this are just some extra stitches to get rid of the last thread I have on the needle and to keep the padding in place. As you can see on the picture above, I just continue with sewing.
As you can see on the picture above and underneath, I make just some tiny back stitches with a long stitch till the next back stitch. Only thing you need to take care of here is not to go to “deep” and sew through the embroidery.
I try to make some nice and equally spaced stitches – I think, besides keeping the padding in place, that this also looks nice and decorative.
Apropos nice and decorative – how about adding something extra to your gift?
As you maybe remember, I really like Chain Stitch and the Lazy Daisy Stitch (a very fast and cute form of Chain Stitch in my opinion) and the small daisies are just absolutely cute. *grin*.
And yes, I took some photos for you of how I do the Lazy Daisy Stitch daisies:
Btw. you can also become creative and add more petals if you like. 🙂
Btw. I “sew in” the end of the thread by just making some additional decorative back stitches after the last daisy – then a long stitch, I apply some tension to the thread, cut it and as soon as the tension is away, the thread normally vanishes in the wool fabric…
