this tutorial by lupinbunny, decided I wanted to use some tardis coloured binding strip instead of hemming everything and I just sort of filled in the gaps.
Have some in-progress shots:
these are my materials, I ended up having to use 2 skeins of embroidery floss because it was such a big design (if I recall correctly I used 3 strands) - and that's HOMEMADE binding strip :-) hell yea!
I also sent my lovely partner this very tiny embroidery hoop:
(I just noticed the big 'ole CHINA mark on the bottom of the hoop... hmmm... should have put that to the back... *rollseyes* )
Anyhow, hopefully you've managed to follow what I did there... hope you like it!
