One more Christmas present

I have one Christmas present that I made to show you. This box went to my friend and neighbour Päivi and it's stitched with the same patterns that I used for Michiko's box earlier. I used a sparkling aida, a red ribbon and red thread for this one.





The sparkle of the fabric can be seen better in this last picture. It looks like it's stitched on snow. :)




Please read my earlier post about the knitting magazine and if you can help me, please send me an email.

What a fantastic box this is, soooooo beautiful. I really didn't know that sparkling aida was existing, it's really beautiful and seems fun for winter projects.

Danielle: I learnt to make these when I was spending a weekend with other stitchers last year. I don't know if there are tutorials online.
The technique that I use is similar to this that I used with two-sided Christmas ornament http://needleandsomethread.blogspot.com/2009/12/wxsw-groups-christmas-exhange.html . I used hot glue to glue the stitching to a piece of cardboard (some padding between the stitching and cardboard) and then glued the cardboard to the top of the box. I also used hot glue to glue the ribbon around it.

Thanks for explaining! I would like to try such things but I don't know how to go about with the hems.

Have a nice weekend and keep on making great stuff!
