Christmas ornament for fund raiser.


I've not been doing much hand stitching this week because I have a few quilting deadlines to meet but I did make this ornament for a fundraiser. We were sent a small version of the star pattern and had to enlarge it to 6". The only direction given was to do some hand stitching on it.
I used some of my white sparkly fabric, drew some squiggly lines, used white DMC floss to do back stitch and French Knots in the sequins. I was going to blanket stitch round the edges but I did not like how it was looking so left it "as is." I made the yo-yo and hand stitched it to the center. I like how it turned out but next time round I think I'll draw the star more rounded just because it will be easier to stuff it.
Speaking of fund-raisers go check out what is happening at Stitching For a Cure (click on angel in my sidebar). The big event is almost here and Donna has done an impressive job of getting everything organized.
