We all know that outlines can be the basis of easy personalized needlepoint. A great source of these is cookie cutters. But Jean Loffredo had another idea.
She decided that she wanted to use her son’s hand for the outline. He came up with the flag idea. She put the field for the stars in the corner and added beads to be the stars. Each finger is a stripe, alternating red and white. One stitch was used for each color. The whole piece was stitched in pearl cotton.
It just shows you how easy it is to make something unique and wonderful.
