Here is a lovely inspiration for a stitching project without much stitching - it only involves finding some pretty printed images and gluing them to thin card, then binding them with ribbon and bringing them together to make a charming floss basket. You can age your images, fabric, ribbon and threads. Play around with some paper shapes and cellotape until you are confident about how all the shapes fit together. It doesn't have to be totally perfect, as you can see. Once you have made this, just think what else you could do!
(I shall have a free download for the construction next week to help you.)
