Betsy Ross

Of course I put Betsy on the stretcher bars.  I could not resist.  She is part of a series called Wild Women by Melissa Shirley.  I got the stitch guide from Amy Bunger.

Stars by Stephanie




 I didn't like the star stitch so I used one that my friend, Cindy, created.  They look a little like starfish, but I like the way they come up off the canvas.

  4. Stephanie, yes, please, tell us how you did the stars! You and Julie inspired me and I got my Betsy out - she just needs her flag, boobs, and outer borders and stars to be done!

  6. Let me figure out how to do this. It's an old diagram in pencil. I think I need to redraw it and scan it in to the computer. Isn't it great? Adaptable to any shape star.
