Floss Tag

I couldn't stand not trying something new! With Staci and Becky's encouragement I stitched up a little gift for my friend in France. This design is Tiny Toad a freebie by The Cricket Collection. I used Staci's instructions to create the floss ring tag. It was super easy to do, although...I do recommend a bit of practice attaching the eyelets; my first couple were pretty sad!

This is a gift, but it hasn't been mailed yet. I'll go to the post office with it after work tomorrow. I don't mind if my friend happens to see it before is arrives but I don't think she reads my blog.

Many thanks for your sweet comments and lots of stitchy hugs for updating your own blogs! You all are always giving me such great ideas and I love reading your wonderful posts!

Cute little tag. I just did one for a keychain fob for my brother. They are so fun. Especially with my crop-a-dile eyelet setter!

HOW DARLING IS THAT FROG!?!?! Oh my gosh he's so cute! YES I was shouting. lol Very well stitched! He looks like our tree frog, only a li'l plumper...and of course yours has a bow tie. I don't think ours would sit still long enough for one of those. : snicker :

Great job on the finishing, too. SEE you can do anything you set your mind to do! ::: applause ::: =)
