STEP 1 Assembly: Stitch sunflower square to front piece on the right side. Use a hidden stitch, (Stitch through the "hump" on the back side of the last round on the flower square.) Put each stitch just under the front and back lp of the last row of the front piece then through 1 strand of the sides of the front piece then across the bottom just above the starting row. This will make the flower square look like it was glued on.
STEP : Line up row 1 of front piece to row 1 of back piece making sure the right side of each piece is facing you. Stitch all layers together onto the plastic canvas using a whip stitch. Go all the way around the outside edge only. Glue magnet strips to the top and bottom of the message pad on the back.
