Hi, what do you do with your bit kits? I'm stitching a very small one and wonder what do do with it when done. Thanks!
Depending on the shape of the design, you could make any number of things with your finished kit. For me, part of the fun of making one of these is figuring out what to do with it once it's done. A couple of things to consider are: 1) use it to learn/practice drawn thread hemming and you'll have a nice little mat; 2) some of them are the right shape for a really pretty coaster for your favorite morning mug; 3) if you're a sewist, you could use your kit for a pretty pincushion (cut a piece of fabric , sew it to your bit kit, stuff it and you're done!) ; 4) if you're wanting a fabulous new pillow cover, you can use your kit as the centerpiece for the front of that; or 5) some of them make really nice wall hangings that you could put in a spot that will give you a little spark of joy whenever you see it. I'm finishing one right now that I'm going to use to cover the top of a box that will go on my night table. I have to say, these bit kits are so wonderful!
Here are some ideas:
* I keep one on my desk with a plant on it for a bit of color.
* I give them as gifts
* They look really great as a mini embroidery "tableau" with a small plant (Trader Joe's sells those tiny ones for about $4) or a candlestick--I put this on a dresser or bookshelf next to a bunch of books.
* I put one on the cart in my workshop that holds my tools and scissors because it's nice to be reminded of a finished project while I'm making new things.
Hope that helps!
