I don't have much time to stitch now that I am home schooling my grand daughter but I take my Medici sample with me to try. Problem is that it is just like one of those puzzles where you mustn't take your pencil off the paper when you have to draw a shape. So, little progress.
I am also about to embark on an experiment to make a small container, I think they are called a Thimble Pip or Clam-shell purse. They look like this.
I have found an Asian tutorial on how to make them and I know that Clover have a set of templates you can buy, (in the USA), these use a templastic base. But my experience of them has been as holders for necklaces etc. These ones seem to be made on a cardboard base. So I am going to make one of each. Every other tutorial I have found shows you how to draw the shape using a compass. (I ditched mine years ago.) I want to use my drawing program for this. I will let you know how I go.
