My partner (the dear sweet and lovely Anna.wahnsinn) and I decided to swap for twinchies - we both love them and it keeps the shipping down. she had a lovely pin of some small round embroideries of trees in all 4 seasons. I thought they were well suited to twinchies. I started by stitching roughly identical trees, then adding french knots over top.  Even though they are only twinchies, they were pretty time consuming.

Thank you! You should bring the jacket to Asheville and we can all stitch a tiny smidge on it.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Oh, these are so charming! I'm a sucker for a four seasons set and this one is particularly nice.

I recently made my first set of embroidered twinchies for sheepBlue in the good little things swap and I would like to know what's your method for getting your corners so sharp, mine definitely were not like that.  I sewed two squares, front sides together most of the way round, then turned right-side out and blanket stitched around the edges so the corners are a bit rounded.

They look like they're wrapped around a hard backing?

Yep CLM is right. I cut cardboard and wrapped around, stitching the sides together on the back. It does not make a pretty back, but if you look at tutorials for framing embroidery that seems a pretty standard way to keep the front looking good.
