Finishing supplies for all six ornaments (as shown):

NOTE: each ornament uses a different color of DMC floss for cording and a different Mill Hill bead color for the beaded edge; please see stitching instructions and key included in the chart pack for a specific breakdown when only stitching one ornament.

Each design contains both cross stitch over-one linen thread and cross stitch over-two linen threads. For cross stitch over-one linen thread use one strand of floss ~ for cross stitch over-two linen threads use two strands of floss. Design also contains a back-stitch border using two strands of floss. Directions for all three stitches provided.

I encourage you to use floss and fabric colors that match your personality and style.

A worksheet with an alphabet and numbers is provided for personalizing the back of your ornament.

Finishing instructions included.

One design would make a wonderful needlebook or needlework small.

Try using a matching cotton print fabric for the back of your ornament.

Alternative options to the beaded edge: use twisted cord around entire ornament...or use matching rick rack (really cute!).

Personalize the back of the ornament by stitching names, initials, baby weight, and/or dates...add a motif from the front of the ornament or from your favorite source.

Use as a package tie-on for that special occasion gift...or flat finish as a knob hanger...or even make a tiny framed piece...the possibilities are endless...
