TIP: When working with layered needlework designs, mount the bottom layer of fabric on a solid piece of acid-free foam-core board. Cut an opening in a second piece of foam-core board the same size as the stitched area of the top layer of fabric and mount it so design area is over the opening. Position the mounted fabric pieces atop each other, and frame as desired.

IDEA!
• Stitch a birdhouse from the “Think Snow” chart to make a bell pull for your favorite bird lover.
• Make button covers stitched with the cute small mitten design.
• Use the adorable “Angel Kitten” design and create a broach.
• Bring smiles to a favorite teacher by stitching up a bookmark using a row of the “Mitten” designs.

TIP: When appliqueing dark fabric onto dark fabric, it’s a struggle to see the edge of the piece to be appliqued.

A quick swipe of a finger removes all traces of the chalk!
