Nanny Angie teaches something new … making a pendibulle
Stitch your design. Thedesign shown is my original.   This is a 60 stitch by 60 stitch square.  Once you have stitched your corner design, then you need to back stitch a border all round.   This  you can use this later to whipstitch your pendibulle together.  Cut your design leaving 5 squares around all edges.
Fold your design in half and using the backstitch whipstitch one side, tucking the left over squares inside. .   Stuff lightly making sure there is more stuffing in the centre of the pendibulle and less on the two sides.     Repeat the whipstitch on the second side.   You know have a stuffed triangular piece
Turn the triangle over and pull together the two corners as shown above.   Stitch these together
Turn to the front and you have a pendibulle which you can now adorn with what ever you would like to finish it off.
I added a bow
and I added a tassel.
My finished pendibulle.

Pendibulles can be made for any occasion and would make super wedding favours.  You do not need to stitch a design but can make with some fancy fabric and decorate in your wedding colours.  Hang on a tag with your date of wedding and names.  Super as a small wedding favour for someone to take home.    You can also stuff with dried Lavender or pot pourri and hang on your clothes in the wardrobe.   Make an unusual pincushion to hang on your work frame.  Shown below is another example of my own design.

I hope you like this tutorial and I look forward to creating more.

Happy Stitching
