I’m working my way through project ideas and stash, this has been on my list for AGES and now I’ve finally given it a try.
I only stabbed myself once and bled on the white stitches just a wee bit.
It came right out with a little dishsoap and gentle scrubbing. Guess I’ll be keeping this first try, can’t be sending something like that out into the world these days!
It’s not an actual stone in there, though there are tutorials for such a thing. I used scraps of fulled sweaters and some roving.
You wrap them up in a tightly knotted nylon stocking and wash/dry them with the rest of your laundry, a few times to get them good and felted.
There’s a tutorial at lilfishstudios on that part. For the embroidery, you’re on your own. I found it quite challenging, as evidenced by my self-stabbing, ouch!
