The Pondo stitch

I made a video on youtube it's in five parts

but I though it was a little blurry, hopefully I will have the technique down for the next one ;) I only have my Canon Powershot camera, it's pretty old. Well I hope you'll enjoy it and learn the pondo stitch.

Just in case I also made a picture tutorial for you. Just click on the pictures and have fun.

There's really not a lot of picture of the pondo stitch out there, so if you would like to share what you made let me know and I can upload it to my blog with your name of cause. ;D

So the wonderful talented Mikki Ferrugiaro has made her very own version with superduo's! Please go to her site and see it for your self. She has made a wonderful tutorial and a kit, if you'd like to buy her kit, mention my name Aimée Hansen ;)
