Friday Finishing: DIY Edition

The Focus on Finishing blog has recently concentrated on various ways to finish scissor fobs. I had no idea there were so many options! If you are a Do It Yourself person, you'll love the step-by-step instructions. If you plan never to finish anything you stitch, you'll still want to view the options so you can explain more clearly to your finisher or shop just what style you want for your latest masterpiece.

Thanks, Anne!  Very interesting!

Self finishing is very satisfying and the outcomes can by surprisingly professional if you are patient.  Here is Jan's train set, which is totally darling!
