Making the cover
|First row of loop stitches|
|This is the back side of the loop stitches. I am about to do one row of sc stitches|
|This is what it looks like after a several rows|
|This is the section where I am making the box opening. *See round 18 of the Grass instructions*|
|I've joined my yarn to the other side|
|This is a photo of the back side of the loop stitch|
|The tombstone will go on the left side where there are no loop stitches|
|I traced the tombstone on a piece of cardboard|
|I cut the cardboard slightly smaller than the tombstone|
|The lettering did not come out as well as I had hoped...|
|I used this glue to fix the lettering|
|It looks much better. Once dried, I sewed the two pieces together with the cardboard in the middle.|
|I stitched the front side of the tombstone the the grass|
|I am about to stitch the back side|
|Flower stickers I had leftover from a project|
