Weave the ends and fasten off the extra thread. Now you may need to block this !.
For Blocking we use one part white glue(I used Elmers glue) and water.Dip your work in it and press gently for squeezing off the extra liquid. Air dry for a day.
Now add a pearl in the center as shown with a Sewing Needle.
Now attach the Earring Hooks to your earrings!
