My youngest has finished her first cross stitch project (Permin My first cross stitch kit). It did take almost a year to finish but it's done.
She has made it into a little 20cm cushion. The panda fabric was bought at Lady sew and sew. I cut it to size. The thought of letting an eight year old lose with a rotary cutter scared me. I pined it and she used my sewing machine to sew it together.
Under close supervision, I don't just let any one use my beloved Pfaff you know, and on the slowest setting.
Penny the panda is very happy with her new cushion.
