Appliqué finishing: everything you need to know!
One thing is for sure... you all have been loving our new appliqué finishing options this past year! We have so many options to add your needlepoint to a tote bag, a cooler, a jewelry box... the world is really your oyster! In addition to the fun bundles we've shared, and in response to the overwhelming requests we've gotten, we are now making appliqué finishing a regular option for our customers. 

Read on to learn everything you need to know!

Once you are finished stitching your canvas, you need to decide how you want it finished. Some style bags will only accommodate certain size designs. It's important to pay attention to that when selecting your choice. 

1. Zipper Pouches/Makeup bags

Zipper pouches are great options for smaller canvases. Everyone needs a pouch to toss in their purse or keep their stitching tools in! Zipper pouches can accommodate designs up to 3.5" in size. 

2. Rope Totes

The rope tote is a popular and versatile choice. Again, these bags can accommodate almost any size canvas within reason. 

3. Motion Tote

This is such a practical option! It makes a great diaper bag. The motion tote can accommodate a canvas up to about 5" in diameter.

4. Jewelry Boxes

The soft jewelry box is the latest addition to our appliqué finishing options! It can accommodate any round up to 4.5" in diameter. These bags are fantastic for travel.

5. Coolers

Coolers are one of the easiest bags to add a canvas. They can accommodate almost any size design within reason. They come in two different styles: box cooler or bag cooler. Plus they're fun and practical!

If you have a piece in your finished canvas collection that you want to have finished, click here to download our appliqué finishing form. Send your canvas and the form to us, (we recommend using UPS or Fedex for added reliability). Once we receive the canvas, we will give you a call to confirm all details. Best of all, if you return your canvas to us so that we receive it by November 22nd, we can still get it finished for this year!
