The finished piece!

The finished piece!

Welcome to the next Friday Finishes article!

I honestly have no idea what the number of this finish is… I’m guessing it has to be around the 15th or so? Once I actually get around to writing all of my articles and they’re all in proper order I’ll be coming back to fix the number. (I’ve just done a mental count and it seems like it’s more in the mid-20s or so rather than 15 but we’ll get back to it!)

Name of Piece: iPhone Cross-Stitch Case Kit in Black – DIY

Designed by: Me! The case came with patterns but I tossed them and made my own.

Friday Finishes #23: Love

The finished piece!

Today’s Friday Finish!

I’ve wanted to do this kit since I bought it, but I was actually rather disappointed with it. I’ve come to realize I don’t really like NeedleMagic Inc. kits that much!

Distributed as a kit by NeedleMagic, Inc. under their Stitch ‘N Frame series.

Kit Contains: 14 ct. Aida fabric, yarn, needle, graph, frame, self-adhesive mounting board, and easy to follow instructions.

Finished Size:  I’m going to guess 3 in. by 3 in. because the kit only says “cover model shown as actual size.”
