I just had to secure and replace some of the existing embroidery and then add the initial. I'm quite pleased with how it's turned out, but I wouldn't win any prizes for the neatness of my satin stitch. I am content with the imperfection though - there is satisfaction enough in having had a go and I enjoyed doing it. Unpicking it to try for a neater finish? No thank you!
The back is patchwork and envelope style. It could do with a couple of buttons to help keep it closed. I'm sure I'll get around to that one day but at the speed I'm crafting at the moment it'd be best not to hold your breath.
