Christmas is getting closer! Today I have the first of six Christmas Tree ornaments that I will be sharing with you. There will be a new one added each fortnight. Here is the Christmas Pudding:
These ornaments are very quick to make, can be made from bits and pieces you have in your stash and I hope you will really enjoy making them.
I've used some fun embroidery stitches to embellish the ornaments. Fly stitch is a great felt enhancement and I've fallen in love with Palestrina Knot stitch:
The crochet edge is optional and I've made suggestions for alternatives if you're not a crochet fan.
The pattern is available in my Craftsy Store. Craftsy have changed their format over this weekend so I hope you can find your way around. Let me know if you have any difficulties.
Seeing we're on a Christmas theme, I would like to show you this lovely "Joy to the World" cushion that I designed:
I really like everything about this - the colours, the sentiment, the appliques, the embellishments.
... a little bit of stitchery, Prairie Points ....
... Suffolk Puffs, braid and lace:
The pattern is in Handmade Vol 35 No 4:
It's easy to find on the cover!
I'd love to see your take on the Pudding ornament so send in those photos!
