How to Finish A Cube Yourself

"Stitcher" who belongs to the ANG Email List posted a link to a great finishing tutorial from Hannah that shows how to create a cube wrapped in fabric with a bow on top.  Hannah's tutorial uses a styrofoam block and straight pins, so over time depending on your environment, the pins might rust if they aren't stainless or the fabric start to loosen.  Over decades I don't know how the styrofoam will effect the stitching but personally, I don't look ahead that far since I will be long gone!

Hannah is finishing a counted thread piece on linen but the person who told the ANG email list about this says he/she has followed the instructions for needlepoint and they work perfectly fine.
