Cranberry Christmas – Finishing Template
Thank you for stitching this new Holiday Classic! I’ve provided a template (see link below) below which is the exact size that was used in the pictured finishes. You just need to grab some foamcore, cardboard, batting, ribbon & all of those extra little bits to fully-finish your series!
Please follow my other Flat-Finishing tutorials for guidance on setting up your cut boards, lacing & stitching front to back. Print out this page & adjust as necessary so that the dimensions of the template measure what it should.
I chose to use foamcore for lacing the stitched portion & cardboard for the backing. This made the ornament slightly thicker & perfect for the 1/4” wide velvet ribbon that I found. I plan to talk a little more about this in a FlossTube tutorial—check out my YouTube channel under The Hands On Designer/Cathy Habermann.
Have fun finishing & be sure to show your finishes using the hashtag—#handsondesign & # cranberrychristmas.
Here is a link to the template!
Enjoy the stitch,
