For the first time ever, I did a finishing tutorial of my new counted cross stitch pattern, "Spring Boo Bees Bee Well Bell Pull." I posted the tutorial on YouTube sans editing. Making an hour long video with no editing was quite a learning experience. I want to thank all of my Flosstube viewers and commenters for their kind words about my first ever "Stitch with Me" video.
I created this pattern for the Be Well and Stitch movement. With many of us indoors during this time, why not provide some cheer and complimentary stitching to our stitching friends. Given the recent shortage of toilet paper in the United States and the style of my stitched piece, I decided to mount it on an empty toilet paper roll (technically it is a paper towel roll that I cut to size based on the width of my finished piece). I secured the stitched piece with fancy counting pens. The cardboard tube has an 18 inch piece of ribbon attached to it. I figured this unconventional finish would give my stitching friends a laugh.
I received a lot of questions about the interfacing and products I used during the video. Here are some of the things I used:
