This design makes me think of Salty Yarns. I love that place. I finished it all up yesterday. Here is my finishing progress:
I finished all the stitching and cut it out.
I pressed it and ironed on some interfacing:
I whipped stitched the sides. I used #12 pearl cotton.
I basted the top edge down and added a piece of mat board in the bottom.
I added the jumbo rick rack. I stitched it on. You could probably glue it if you wanted.
I cut some felt for the the lining.
I attached the lining.
