2012 Christmas Ornament Exchange

Here is my Christmas ornament that I made for the Jo Morton Stitcher's exchange.

I used 5/8 inch hexagon papers purchased from  www.paperpieces.com. The back is identical to the front. I embroidered beads to the center fabric following the printed design of the fabric. After completing all the hexagons I then whip-stitched them together to make the "flower".

I whip-stitched the back to the front, stuffed it and then attached the bells and thread for hanging.

The pincushion is made using an antique salt cellar and the decorative pin is made from assorted beads.

I sure hope my exchange partner likes it!

Hope you all have a great day stitching...

Hugs,
