I fell in love with slow cloth/boro stitching during the swap that was done a few months ago.  I had this frame and wanted to make a patch that would go well with it.  I think I succeeded!  I'm so proud of myself.   Roll Eyes Wink Grin

This is just so cool! The stitching is great, and the framing takes it to the next level... you have every right to be proud, it looks amazing! Glad it got its own post.

That looks great! I love the rustic edges, like it's a salvaged scrap of ancient, beloved garment. Awesome.

CLM, it's funny you mentioned the edges of the patch!  I fray-checked the pieces of fabric before I sewed them and when I saw the piece still fraying, I put more on.  Guess it doesn't work on all fabric?  But I agree, it does seem to add something to it.

Thank you everyone for your compliments!  It means a lot!   Kiss
