Christmas embroidery

I stitched these designs in white onto red felt and made pillow ornaments.  Lots of fun to make!

More bird softie ornaments!

These use a pattern from Sew Pretty Christmas Homestyle and are made of felt with embroidery.  I used stencils for the words ‘Joy’ and ‘Love’ and hand embroidered flowers using a variety of stitches – satin, oyster, stem, french knot, etc.  I used a stamp pad with sand colored ink to make the white birds a bit antique-looking.P1020197


Another Spool Sewing bird softie

P1020195Here are more birds that I made following the spool sewing pattern.  I used felt for the body and cotton fabric for the underside.  I embroidered the front and added a bead for the eye.







Here are some mini birds that will make nice ornaments. I made poinsettia flowers using oyster stitches and french knots.
