It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas .....
Hi bloggers, I've been busy this past week or so making felt Christmas decorations. First time I've had a go at these and it's not often I say this, but I'm rather pleased at how they've turned out.
I had to refresh my memory for doing blanket stitch. The actual stitch is easy enough, it was joining the thread that was tricky. After trying various ways, I found that tying the threads together, then hiding the knot in between the layers of felt worked best. (Sorry, if you don't follow what I mean, I never thought to take a photo but I'll add one in later).
They're all handstitched - no gluing - and all cut using various dies ...
I'd like to enter these into the following challenges ...
Addicted to Stamps & More - Red and White
Anything But a Card - A Stitch in Time
Let's Craft & Create - Getting Ready for Christmas
Out of a Hat Creations - Use some of your stash (I have so much felt!)
Okay, that's me for today, thanks for popping and I'd just like to send good wishes and hugs to those of you who are feeling a bit under the weather at the moment.
Take good care
