Flat Fold # 2




Here is my second flat fold attempt. This time it was done completely by the no sew method. The pattern is Lizzie Kate's. I have had this in my finished stack since 2002. I never could figure out what I wanted to do with it until now. It is also the very first piece that I stitched on linen. I haven't crossed stitched on Aida since then. I am very happy to have it out of the finished pile and to be able to enjoy it out and about in my home.

Lovely! I have never tried this.

Oh, I just love it! Was it easy to finish up? I'm not much of a sewer, either, so I'm always looking for a new finishing method.

Sue said...

What a nice finish. How do you do that without any sewing?

Barb said...

Sharon, you did a great job on your no-sew flat fold! I've bookmarked the link you gave last time in case I decide to try one for myself. :D

Annemarie said...

Sharon, thank you so much for your e-mail! I tried to send a couple back to you, but I keep getting failure notices. This is just to let you know I will check out the links as soon as I have a spare minute!

You're on a finishing roll! Wow!
Both flat folds look great - now having tried both, which method do you prefer?

Your flat folds turned out beautifully - great job! :D Have to admit, the gluing method is soooooo much quicker! ;)
