Art with My Needle ~ Week 17

Most people are busy right now so I am sticking with a little sample of cut work.

The front

The back

The stitch used throughout is buttonhole stitch.  All the pattern is worked before the desired area is cut close to the stitches, making sure not to cut through them.

A short video details how to form the stitch.  As a bonus to the right of the video are plenty more , showing other stitches for anyone that may be interested.
