Ongoing inchies

Still playing with my inchies (that sounds vaguely rude.)

I start off by finishing the edges by hand.  This is painstaking and makes for very sore fingers as the fabric pieces are a bit difficult to get the needle through in places.

But I like the hand finished edges for neatness and colour.   I tried edging some with the machine, using zigzag stitch, but it's not nearly as tidy.  I probably just need practice.

All edged in embroidery floss which I've space-dyed myself.

I need to figure a way to assemble them into bracelets next.  I have one or two ideas.

I love them with added beads too. I'll be doing more bead malarkey with them.
