Butterfly Teapot Tissue Box


Here's a 'companion' piece to the teapot I did a few years ago. :)
This is another kit by Mary Maxim. I changed just a little bit along the butterfly where the pattern wasn't identical, but otherwise followed the instructions. I wish I had altered more! The tight one-stitch used for the white background here really tightened the canvas, and so my box is just a little wobbly, especially compared to how straight my rose box is. If I had used the larger stitches like the rose box I believe it would have laid nicer.

This is going into my shop, since the colors on it match our theme perfectly. :)

Color Total: 6
Size: 9.5 inches spout-handle, 5.5 inches long, 5 inches wide, 7 inches tall

What kind of stitch did you use on the background, if you don't mind my asking?

It looks like you used something like goblin stitch on the rose one.  I really like this stitch, but is it easy to use it on a pattern that doesn't already have it?  If so, I'm going to end up using it everywhere!

Thanks! Honestly, I don't know too much about straight up needlework technicalities. I can tell you, from my other stitching experiences, that this was super easy to do. You know how the patterns are laid out in grids? Think of this as a "1 over 1" stitch, I came up in a hole and went down directly diagonal to it, just crossing the plastic + between. I think you could easily take the Rose box I did and convert all those longer stitches into small ones like this, no problem.

I hope that's understandable. :O
