Would you like some cross stitch finishing ideas?
I hope you like my embroidered covered box with accessories, including needlebook, scissor fob and bottle cap pincushion, the box was supposed to be part of an exchange but I got glue on the fabric and it shows so I decided to start again and make something else, of course I made sure on the next project that I did not get glue everywhere!

I used DMC thread number 833 in this design, there are swarovski crystals on the scissor fob and I have put a small butterfly closing on the needlebook.
I loved finishing this embroidered strawberry scissor fob
I show how to finish a strawberry over on my cross stitch finishing blog, see the link below.

WOW Lyn, stunningly beautiful. I am in awe.

Its ok to get glue on stuff…you aint gluing right if you don't!!!! It's stunning and part of the fun of making things yourself.
