Mounting TAST

Today I want to show how I mount the TAST pieces on cardboard.

Things needed: cardboard, pins, thread, needle, scissors

First I remove the embroidery from the hoop, press it and cut it large enough to cover front and back of the cardboard + a generous seam allowance.

I pin the first fold, then the top and the bottom.

Finally I pin the fold over the back.

I stitch the sides together with ladder stitch.

When done, I press on a label on the back.

Completed.

    I was wondering how long the skirt of the gown is.

    1. Thank you, Latha.
      It is an easy way to finish the small TAST embroideries. I can store the cards in a box or display them leaning against something. With a few strands of string on the back, the cards can also be hung.
      There is a great feeling of satisfaction when each TAST project is done. I have enough UFOs as there is!
