Robin’s Nest Mystery Exchange – Covered Tape Measure

Mystery Exchange

This is my 3rd exchange piece for 2007, my 2nd for Robin’s Nest. I stitched this covered tape measure for Heidi, for the Exchange. I wanted to stitch something different which was why I picked this and I was also keen to make another covered measure after making the one for my Dad’s wife’s Birthday. I included two skeins of Carrie’s Creations (Monarch, which I stitched with for the exchange and Twinkle as they are such pretty blues).

The motif’s are adapted from an fil en aiguille sampler.

  3. Love these little covered tapes you do Ish. Is there a site where it tells you how to do them, and where do you get the tiny tapes in the first place.
