Finishing links

This page contains links to finishing tutorials on a range of different techniques. My aim is to compile a really comprehensive centralised list of links for all stitchers to access, so if you know of any other tutorials that should be included, either ones you’ve created yourself or that you’ve come across online, please leave a comment below with the relevant details.

Different Techniques:

  • Si le point m’etait compte – a few different techniques, including biscornu, cube, heart box, stitchers envelope – in french, but very clear pictures.

  1. Found your site on a search for flat fold instructions – wonderful ideas and links you have, thank you for your help!

  2. I found your site while looking for finishings and I am really excited about what I found here. I found almost everything I was looking for! Thanks for the instructions even though some are not in English but the photographs are great and easy to following. I am sure I will be back very often.

  3. I have just saved those needleroll instructions, ready to print off a copy. Judith’s are so easy to follow – I am a lot more confident now about having a go at making one of these delightful little nick-nacks! Remember when I saw all yours, I was lost for words? I’m not going to compete with you – LOL!!
