First up, Gardener's Alphabet "T" put into an acrylic trivet. The back has a piece of cork on it. This is the easiest finish there is, just trim and stick it in there! I did have some trouble getting it straight though and it would have been better if the stitching hadn't come right to the very edge. Sorry about the flash reflection!
Next is a tote bag. I've had this zippered tote for several years, my husband brought it home from a convention. I use it all the time as a project bag and one day the light went on! Cover the logo with a piece of needlepoint. Duh!! I had this Mad Miters in my portfolio and it fit just right over the logo. I purchased the brown edging and sewed it all on. Fortunately, my sewing machine has a free arm, or I wouldn't have been able to do it!
Kudos on doing the finishing yourself! Where did you find that trivet?
