I did it!

My darling dad took me out shopping this morning just so I could buy batting and some cording. Then I spent 2 and a half hours this afternoon making my very first pinkeep!

And this is the back of the design. My mum had some spare green fabric lying around so I decided to use that as a nice contrast to the red. It does make it look Christmassy though!
I know that it's a bit crooked and some of the whipstitching is dodgy, but I am very pleased with it. Thank you so much to Jen who pointed me in the right way to find finishing instructions. The blogs you suggested were exactly what I was looking for. I've never attempted anything like this before and although it's not perfect, I get a certain amount of satisfaction knowing that I made this all by myself. Now there will be no stopping me! I'm going to investigate making a pincushion soon, but I'd like to focus on Charlie for awhile. I took him with me babysitting last night and did get a fair amount done, but I simply forgot to take a photo.
My revision was put aside for crafts, so now I must return to my Biology books.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend,
