Paper Sweeties November Release Rewind

Thursday, November 15, 2018

Hey, friends!  I promised to put Paper Sweeties' November Release, Merry, to work, without paper, for you all today; and I'm here now to deliver.
I started this holiday, wall decor project and/or these tree decorations by stamping each word/phrase, from Merry, with a light-colored, water-based, washable ink, on scraps of white fabric.
I then stitched over the stamped lines with my chosen, non-traditional shades of embroidery floss...
eliminating only one of the colors from the final, shorter word.  Once each stitched, fabric word/phrase had been washed and dried, just to make sure none of the initially-stamped ink was showing, they were stretched across tiny, wood, embroidery hoops...
and embellished with die-cut, white, felt, Meet Me Under the Mistletoe, holly leaves, stitched with color-coordinating, button berries and Strawberry...
Robin Egg...
and Green Apple seam binding ribbon, tied in double bows and embellished with single pearls, backed with lengths of white string, tied in bows.
Thanks, as always, for humbling me with a visit!  Have a wonderful remainder of your week and a truly blessed, holiday season.  XOXO
