This pattern is a design only, there are no finishing instructions. You could make a small wallhanging, like I did, or put it on a tote bag or purse, or pillow. I wanted a bird cage design that did not have the bird caged - this bird is free to fly in and out! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY This is a basic stitchery pattern, done completely in backstitch with two strands of floss. There are no finishing instrucions!
