Chapter eighteen – The resoluteness

previously on The grey tailI got a bunch of stuff to keep my eyes and belly busy with. yum.

– – –

while I renewed the aspect of the blog, and updated the terribly old content, I realized the “2013 finishes” space was pretty empty. I tried and tried to remember, to focus, but nothing came to my mind. and it dawned to me.

as long as finishing, I haven’t accomplished a single thing so far. eeeeeeeeekkkkk!! 😮

too many starts, that will eventually bring to their own finishings, that’s for sure. but seriously, not even a small accomplishment in 7 months (other than the gifts I sent) is simply preposterous.

so I made good use of all my rediscovered resoluteness, little Travelling Bunny pattern, and need for a scissor fob.

about time

almost done stitching over 2 on the 28ct. Vaupel & Heilenbeck linen.
the fluffy guy is made of furry Wisper thread.

here he is!
it’s a bit hard to see the pompom tail on the left, but it’s there. and it’s all Wisper thread wrapped up 6/8 times in fluffy French Knots I tucked down to get the side to stay on top.

I stitched the outer border for both front and back, then joined the two sides with one ply of DMC thread in the same green of the gingham linen.

I borrowed my mom’s hands and made the cording for the fob in DMC ecru and 3348.
you can see the bunny tail way better here, and the pearl seed beads I added to the flower. lots of 3D stuff in this tiny fob.

the front and back (in the same V&H linen) are completely joined.
here I’m stitching the cording using slip stitches and one ply of the green thread.

hope you liked the walkthrough. it was my very first handmade scissor fob, and surely the tiniest finishing I’ve ever done so far 🙂

  1. GREAT job on your fob – he’s so cute!!! And bravo for using the Whisper without pulling your hair out! That stuff is maddening in any area more than 5×5 stitches 🙂
