I met Bill twelve years ago on a Sutton Trust Summer School at Cambridge and it was a real pleasure to see him marry Melanie yesterday. They’re a wonderful couple and it was a fabulous day in Wimbledon at St. Mary’s Church and Cannizaro House.
So, this is how I did it…
I put the design together on the computer using bits of patterns that I have bought from Stitching Cards, which is my greatest source of inspiration.
|Begin stitching the design. Tape the thread to the back of the card and then concentrate really hard! It’s devastating to get most of the way through a section and then discover that you miscounted.|
|Frame it, wrap it up and keep your fingers crossed that the recipients like it!|
For more information on how the stitching is done see the tutorial on the Stitching Cards website.
