A Finish!!

I’ve heard from Vickie that my package have arrived safe and sound, so it is ok for me to show you my finish on Souvenir de France. After debating for a little bit on how should I finish this piece, I decided to make it into a flatfold~ Using Vonna’s flatfold tutorial as my guide, I finished it with a breeze, and I LOVE how it turned out!!! In fact, I love it so much that I might make another one just for myself~


Pattern: Blackbird Designs freebie “Souvenir de France” 
Thread: Gentle Art Cotton Floss – Garden Gate
Fabric: 32 ct Belfest Linen color Flex 
Finished Size: 4.375”x 6.625”  
Finishing Date: 04-18-2012

I chose a pink backing fabric for this piece, cause I thought Vickie would like it. Plus I think it would be a perfect match~ I also used a black sheer ribbon as the trim and top.


Absolutely love it!!!


Here is the whole package I sent to Vickie~ I’m so glad that she liked it!! Can you see there’s a theme going on here? ^^


Have a great week!!!

  3. Oh Theresa! I told you this in my email, but it bears repeating. I opened your package and was filled with emotion. I was so happy that you made this beautiful flatfold FOR ME! My thirteen year old daughter asked why you would make something so pretty and then give it away. And so I explained the wonderfulness of you and all our stitching pals here in this community. I am so thankful and privelaged to call you and everyone here friends. ♥
