I make ornaments every year for Christmas presents.  One year I painted glass bulbs and another year I made big fabric poinsettias.  This year I'm doing a lot of different things!  Including my first tries at embroidery!


Oh Christmas tree!  Embroidered on felt, with a fabric background. Bead ornaments!


Embroidery on felt, with bead accents.


SANTA!  I saw a line drawing of him on-line and transferred it to stitching, the fluffy parts are loose french knots. I had sewed every senqin on the edges, it was quite time consuming.  As was his beard.


This is for my mom.  Her name is Holly and of course holly is her favorite Christmas motif!  The cardinal represents my grandma, who loved cardinals and I thought it would be a nice touch!  I cut the leaves out of felt and stitched a vein going through the center of it.

Thanks for looking!  I'm quite proud!
