  • 3. Place half of felt piece onto the back of cross-stitched design and sew using running stitch along the edge. Refer to photo and follow outline for stitching. Trim entire piece.
  • 4. Take the other half of felt and place on back of the piece. Lightly mark two spots along bottom for wooden dowels.
