More Stitches

Oh, I really love this month's sewing theme at Gingersnap Creations, it is such great fun and so enjoyable. The Random Redhead challenge for November is: Stitching ... it can be anything - real stitching, faux stitching, embroidery, ... endless combinations and possibilities like ... combining paper and stitching (lol)
This tag started with the papers. They are from Cosmo Cricket and they have just such a christmasey feel to it. I cut the tag and then small strips of paper which I machine-stitched onto the tag. The thread I used is real silk thread, I had forgotten that I still had some from my Grandma. It is so lovely to work with.
To decorate the tag I made a flower ornament using vintage paper; the circles for the flower are cut with edging scissors and distressed with chalk.

Hop over to Gingersnap Creations and enjoy the amazing stitching show! Come and join us for the challenge, Petra.
