Q&A with mayanna31

DrFun asked:
So cool - love that stencil, and it looks like you backstitched?
mayanna31 answered:
thankyou, yes it is backstitched, took probably 5 times longer to do than if I'd done it in a running stitch but I thought it would look better. by the way if you plan to do this use a blunt needle like a size 18 embroidery needle, less of a strain on the hand :)
