Two photos today of the inside and outside sides. Once I got the canvas cut and folded it was simple to stitch the corners with Long-arm Cross stitch and then around the base. I snipped the inner corners (almost to the corner) as I felt it was a bit lumpy set to one side.
I now have to fill it firmly and add the felt base.
Some time back I read a tip online for keeping long threads that were too many for a bobbin.
I thought someone may be interested to see photos of how this works. Plaited threads.
Hang from the cord and when you need any thread, just gently pull it from the bottom. It may bunch slightly while pulling but won’t tangle and the plait can be smoothed back as it was. It’s never failed me.
It is ideal for kits of cut threads but I keep any oddments this way too.
