I made a resolution over the holidays (yet again) to attempt to finish some of my miniature projects that I have on the go in various stages of completion. With the holidays in mind, I pulled out some of my miniature needlepoint stockings that I have never finished. They are from kits from www.micro-stitchery.com and worked on 48 count silk gauze. The partridge in the pear tree had numerous shades of beige and took quite awhile to complete!
The truth is, I am nervous about finishing them. The directions suggest fray check ( a fabric glue) and then cut all around the needlepoint and sew it to a ultrasuede type fabric. This is where I am hoping for some suggestions from fellow bloggers. I am worried that the glue will discolour the needlework over time. I would appreciate any and all advice!
Next December, I hope to show you the completed stockings in place with my miniature stocking holders over my dollhouse fireplace!
