Noel Treat Bag finish
This one was a quickie little gift to let the recipient know we were thinking about them. I went all over looking for a little angel pin to put inside it and finally found one, then broke it trying to get it out of the little box it came in :/ So I attached a little hanger to this so it could be hung. This was a freebie from the Victoria Sampler. I used white linen (I HATE white) and managed to keep it clean (ok so I was only stitching on it for a few hours, lol). I am terrible at finishing this kind of thing and I think this was my first treat bag. I learned the picot stitch for the top edging and it turned out ok, just no one look at the back too carefully to see how I stitched it up. Dye Shop threads, Kreinik metallic, and Mill Hill beads were used for the stitching.
Beautiful ornament!!! Funny about youR Dh's comments. My DH said alomost the same thing. I showed him a LK ornie I was working on, and he said it looked "amazing" when I finally stitched it up into the actual ornament he saId "that's cute"!???? So next year I will leave all stitched ornaments on my q-snaps, unfinished where they will look "amazing"...because after-all who wants a "cute" tree? LOL LOLPost a Comment
