3. Tear out the photo copy, leaving just the nails on the pallet.
4. Using the perle cotton, tie a knot around one of the nails leaving a 3” tail, using that as the starting and stopping point.
5. Wrap the thread once around each nail to create and outline.
6. Wrap thread across the image, from nail to nail without any particular pattern. Eventually working your way back to the nail in which you started.
