How many times have you looked at a great needlepoint piece and wished you could finish items that way? I know I get this feeling often (In fact I have one piece like that sitting on my desk as I type.) Unless you have a good finisher or are good at figuring it out yourself, you’ll probably keep wondering.
That’s one reason I love Sue Dulle, she is clever and doesn’t let the fact that she hasn’t made an item before stand in her way.
This time she’s created a lovely sewing bird, like the one pictured here.
Better yet, she has given us an illustrated tutorial in two parts on how to do this. Find part 1 here. Find part 2 here.
