Inchies are so much fun. Annet from the blog Fat Quarter, used scraps to make this adorable Inchie. You can read about how she did it in her blog post, but here’s a summary for doing this with needlepoint:
Make sure you use mono canvas, so you can make fringe on the ends.
Mark out a one inch square on your canvas by counting threads.
Use leftover threads to stitch a design in your square. The finishing will be easiest if the Inchie is either solidly stitched or has a line of solid stitching along the edge.
Cut the canvas 1/4 – 1/2 inch bigger than the Inchie all around. (This will determine the length of the fringe.)
Cut a piece of colored card stock slightly bigger than your cut canvas. If you want to punch a hole in one corner of the card and add a ribbon (making the tag another gift).
Use either Kreinik’s Red Tape, double-sided tape, or glue dots to attach the stitched part of the Inchie to the card. Be sure to center it.
Unravel the unworked margins of the canvas to make the fringe.
If your card stock is colored, you can always glue a piece of white paper to the reverse for the writing.
Thanks t Denise from Craft Gossip for pointing this out.
Since I’ve been thinking about an Inchie project, I think I’ll do this to make a stock of gift tags.
