Ornamentified


Design ~ Friends #F47
Designer ~ Lizzie*Kate
Fabric ~ 28 count unknown/unlabeled Linen
Fiber ~ DMC

I spent some time working on ornamentifying this weekend. The little Friends design from my last post was "framed" with some pretty green & white gingham check print fabric then stuffed and edged with loopy cream ribbon tacked on with green Mill Hill beads. This fabric was quite thick and I nearly didn't leave enough space to easily stitch the backing fabric on! I was a being stingy to keep the ornament on the smallish side and it ended up at 3.5 inches square. This turned into quite a sweet ornament and I am pleased. 

Thank you for visiting my blog today!
