F12 Beautiful Finishing 12
   Full Student Kit available..!

"Heart Etui" !

Have you ever wanted to know the secrets of Beautiful Finishing? Learn Lisa’s expert finishing secrets which she uses to create this gorgeous sewing box designed just for this leaflet. 

Create this beautiful Heart Etui and matching Biscornu and Scissors Fob! The entire set is a symphony of Hardanger Lace, sparkling beads, and beautiful Buillion Knot roses made of luscious silk flosses and Perle Cottons. On the front of the etui are two hinged ‘half-hearts’.. which are designed with Kloster Blocks, a very special Dove’s Cote Hardanger square, and several cute specialty stitches, including the words “Stitched With Love”. When you open the two front panels, you find an elastic band to hold your scissors or other tools, as well as two sections of wool felt for your needles and pins. Turn the etui over, and you see a full Hardanger Heart on the back. It is an ec
ho of the front, but with beautiful Hardanger cutwork, and more Buillion Knot roses! Adding to the charm of this set are two accessories; a lovely Biscornu and a delicate Scissors Fob. Included in this learning design are the following stitches: Kloster Blocks, Blanket Stitches, Algerian Eyelets, Partial Greek Crosses, Dove’s Eyes, Dove’s Cote, Bullion Knots, Scotch Stitches, Double Running Stitches, Herringbone Stitches, Smyrna Crosses, Cross Stitches, Petit Crosses, and Japanese Silk Ribbon Stitches. I hope you have fun learning and stitching this elegant design and practicing your Hardanger weaving. When it’s finished, take it with you to your future retreats or display and use it in your own home!
