Using the diagram cross stitch onto an oval shape, fill with pillow stuffing or quilt batting and back with a felt oval.

Add either a bit of cording or a piece of lace to frame the oval. I used a piece of green plaid fabric and made a ruffled frame for my own.

When cross stitching a small item such as this, use a larger piece of aida and cut it back to the size you want.

You could also mount this on a sheet of cardboard or plastic and then back it with felt, so that it is not soft sculpture.

When cross stitching, make certain that all crosses are made in the same direction so that the light hits them the same way.

This will give your work a smooth finished look.

Colors used here are DMC 3032 and 3033 for the back-stitch.
