Promise Me…


Hello Friends!

‘Promise me’ is finished! My granddaughter, Jasmine, who just started 6th grade, is the proud recipient of this piece. It’s hanging above her bed. Proud grandma moment.

I enjoyed finishing this stitching so much.

Hobby lobby has canvas for artist. You know, the white inexpensive canvas? Well, they now have burlap canvas. This was the perfect backdrop for this. Don’t you think?

I cut out the stitching and wrapped it around a piece of sticky board just big enough to give it a border. I then cut another piece of sticky board just a bit larger and wrapped a piece of fabric around. I tacked down both pieces in place with hot glue.

Who doesn’t love a hot glue gun. It’s a crafters saving grace.

I then layered the sticky boards together and hot glued them both to the canvas. 

No piece is complete without a bow. Check.

I’m in love with this. And, my granddaughter is too.

I hope to see you there!

  1. Deb,
    Please help! I am a beginner/intermediate knitter. Bought your “Little Bundle” pattern off Craftsy. Using the Sprightly yarn that it was packaged with, I cannot knit the specified guage! Tried a number of different size needles. Please confirm – the gauge is 4″X4″ square when using Sze US#6 needles, with 18 stitches and 6 rows? Would love to hear from you!

  2. Hi Lana, first of all, I’m sorry you’re having trouble. My suggestion would be to go with the needle size that gives you the recommended stitch gauge. If that’s a size 7 or an 8, or whatever the size, knit with that size needle. Needle size is very subjective as every knitter knits just a little bit different. 😊

    Hope this helps. Happy knitting!
