Mimi's Pin Cube

Mimi's Pin Cube
Olde Colonial Designs
C.2003 by Pamela D. Reed

This kit included 32-ct Fratelli Graziano Italian Cream Siena Linen, Gentle Art Old Red Paint and Grecian Gold, DMC 3052, 611 & 642. The pins, cardboard, and padding also included in the kit.
I managed to lace the linen to the cardboard & padding. Whip stitched them together & pushed in the pins. Very cute pin cube.
