The beads around the edge takes it to a whole new level of fabulousness!

I hope you find overcasting backstitches easy and useful. I’ve been into making small things recently, and I use it all the time. The Bookmarks 101 class/e-book is full of finishing techniques for small projects.

Happy finishing!

You make it look really easy and I love the detailed pictures! Well done! I made a little fob once but I made it way more difficult than it needed to be. I’ve made a few more tiny stitched pieces and threw them in a drawer…I think I’ll retrieve them and try this!
