|Mod Heart Mystery Class|
Today is all about expanding your horizons! As a quilter, I have done trapunto but I never thought it would work on canvas! Way too tight - NOT. And easier than it looks! Baste, backstitch and stuff!
Pin and Baste ...I stuck the pins in instead of really pinning them. Then I basted the edges
Backstitch so it's tight
Then slit and stuff...careful don't cut the needlepoint stitching!
Then whipstitch it closed ( aren't you glad I don't do cosmetic surgery). Take out the basting stitches and trim around the heart! Finished!!
Here's the topside view - all that has to be done is outline the heart with the gold braid to hide the backstitches and give it a finished look
And that is stepping outside the box!
Have a Happy Weekend
