    Loop knot or loop start - This is a really great way to start stitching without having to tie a knot (which is never recommended) or weaving the thread end under other stitches.

    How to get the Primitive look- I dip each stitched ornament in 3 tbsp instant coffee/ 1 cup water. - I squeeze out, and pat onto a towel, and place on a baking sheet, on my oven's lowest setting. I lift them and turn them every 4 minutes, opening the oven door also helps prevent scalding. - When they are only slightly damp, I remove them , and finish off the drying using an iron. I press quickly, as not to scald the fabric.
