Cross stitched bag, pinkeep and pillow.


I decided to make my first cross stitched drawstring bag and use a cross stitch design that I finished quite some time ago, the Amitie design is a freebie from Martine's blog here 
The pinkeep and little pillow I finished for a friend some time ago, you can get the small pillow pattern from my blog here
 The free alphabet pattern is available from me via email in my profile.

I show how to fringe the edge in the photographs below.
On reflection I think I should have put the seam down the side, mmmm!

How to fringe the edge

Cut along the fabric edge 
Stitch the fabric about 1cm from the edge in a straight line

Pull the threads like this
until you get to the stitching and there you have it, a nice fringed edge!
Happy stitching!

Grats on the finishes. They all look lovely. I have no idea how you finish things up so nicely. I frame everything (and I don't even do it myself, lol). Grats!
