A new year and time for a new 3-d shape. This is my first cross-stitched humbug. I wanted to see how the designs are laid out so I would understand how to select patterns on my own later. This one wraps perfectly and even has a cute little heart that meets at the underside seam. It's very easy to stitch up using the biscornu whip stitch method over a back-stitched border line. Especially easy on linen since that fabby is so flexible. In keeping with green efforts, it's stuffed with re-purposed thread-clippings (i.e. orts).
Here's the pattern, a freebie from Hearty-Craft. I think her stitching and finishing are much better than mine, but I'm pretty happy with the result.
