Christmas Once a Month Project #4 (but not really)

April 29th 2013
OK. I was going to call this Christmas Once a Month Project #4 but really that would be cheating since I made felt ornaments for the 3rd project. So let’s just say these are a continuation, okay? 
 
Materials: Felt, floss and needle, beads, ribbon (hot glue only for large piece assembly)
 
 
I really like doing the blanket stitch, more embroidery!
 
 
  I used this Mary Engelbreit wrapping paper as a guide.

 

 
This “Fried Egg Flower” may be my favorite even though it’s not too “Christmas-y.”
   
 
 I really wanted to add dimension to this candy cane with beads or something, but I had to stay true to the illustration. I just whip-stitched the red patches on and secured the long green stitch with a tiny one in the center. 
 
 
 
Here is the leaf which was fun to stitch. I used light green beads to blend, the background is dark enough. I used to 2 light and a medium green strands for the leaves.
 
 
The only one I haven’t done yet is the Gingerbread Boy.  I have made many of these over the years but none looked exactly like the one on the wrapping paper.
 
 
I really want to get into my Christmas Fabric Stash (second row) for the next project!
Over spring break I sorted it by quality, but I won’t name, names. They are good for tons of crafts!

Grab that button on the right side bar (with the stockings) if you want to join or follow along!
I also made this, this and this for this event, in case you haven’t seen them.
