500:

With Scheepjes bonbon white ch 28 for #5, ch 26 for #0

Place the chains on the icon and sew in a few stiches so the number keeps in place.

 

At this stage the icon is ready. I personally prefer to firm up my work whenever I like to create sharp edges. From a carton box (empty lasagna box in particular) I cut a rectangle of 7×3,5×3,5cm and a rectangle of 2,5×2,5×2,5 cm. this I put in the body and filled it tightly with fiber filling before I slip stitched the parts together.
