I love to cross-stitch and am looking for creative ways to "finish" pieces.  I like to make smaller (i.e. manageable!) pieces rather than huge ones.  I have framed quite a few and and also bought little plastic coaster kits from Michael's.  And now I'd like to branch out!  But where can I find other little accessories, ornament kits, and doo-dads that are just waiting for my finished little pieces?  Online links are appreciated, or US chain stores.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Can you attach them to clothing or to totebags? What about mugs or mittens?

I've done buttons and hair pins, which I have pictures of on my Flickr page (link is in my signature).

I am also planning on making pins/badges and magnets.  Magnets would be an awesome idea!

i love the photo envelope magnets-- i've been using a lot of those lately. i get the 2x3 size and slip a tiny piece in:



i trim the canvas w/ pinking shears.

i also like to pick up weird tiny frames at various thrift stores around town (minneapolis).
