How to stitch your secret

It is easy peasy to stitch your secret!

Here’s how:

    • Write your secret in as few words as possible
    • Find some fabric.  How about an old shirt, a tea towel or a fabric offcut?
    • Cut the fabric no bigger than an A4 sheet (295 x 210mm) with a minimum 30mm border
    • It can be any shape!  Asymmetrical, round, fan shaped…..
    • Copy your secret onto the fabric using a sharp pencil or crayon
    • Stitch the letters either by hand or by machine
    • Add some decoration if you wish
    •  Post to to us before the end of December 2017!

But you can do it! Just give it a go.
