Our first Bonus design is a super cute two sided fob. It would also make a great Halloween ornament for your holiday tree.
I am using Comic Board....available on Amazon...and low loft quilt batting.
Measure your finished stitching.
Trim out the extra linen on the corners for a nicer flat finish.
Slip stitch the two pieces together catching just one thread from each side. Try and catch the same row each time for a nice straight finish. Leave one half inch open (not stitched) at the center top.
Use your favorite method and make twisted cord. I did black, orange and green....and for a little flash I added one strand of Rainbow Gallery Artic Rays Black mixed in with the black floss. Tie off a hanging loop at one end of the cord. Tuck the end into the top opening....glue or whip stitch the cord in place around the outside edge.
Work your way around to the top opening. Tape, trim and tuck in the remaining cord end into the opening.
You have finished your fob! Enjoy stitching your Mystery Sampler.
