stitchalong last bit

The last bit is his hat.

If you have the kit there will be some fuzzy white silk for this bit, but if you’re using your own materials a nice thick wool thread will do.

This is really a variation on the couching we’ve already done, so it’s not too challenging.

First bring the thick thread up at the edge of the area to be filled.

Then use a piece of ordinary white sewing thread to couch it down, but instead of couching it nice and flat as previously, couch it into fluffy little puffs

until you’ve filled the entire area.

and he’s finished!
