Foothills Chapter EGA project. A member's husband made the hornbooks and she adapted a design for us to stitch and she instructed us on putting it on the hornbook. I think most people put it on their hornbook with the handle at the top so they could use the hole to hang it. I decided to mount it with the handle down which is how the original hornbook would have be oriented. The twisted cord I made for it originally was too skinny so I used it as a hanger and made a bigger cord to go around the stitching. As a side note, the original hornbook, would not have had those holes down the sides to hold threads since it was used as a means to learn the alphabet, math and other non-stitching related subjects.
Truth be told it has been finish finished for about a week, I just now got around to posting about it!
It was a lot of fun to do, THANKS Donna!
