Can you believe that Christmas is less than 4 months away?
The senior design team challenge for this month at Papertrey Ink was to create a handmade ornament. Nichole's simple and beautiful designs translate perfectly for embroidery - another hobby that I really enjoy. I used the Santa from the Believe set as my pattern by stamping it onto my fabric and then used a backstitch and a few french knots to color my image - I did the same when I made the quilt label for Tacy's quilt here. For the red border fabrics I stamped the polka dots onto them with white acrylic paint before sewing them on for the border of my ornament.
