Back in early Fall I shared a post called Felty Things, including some of my most favorite felt projects, gushing about how much I love to sew with felt this time of year. My talented friend & fellow felt sewing fan Betz White was reading that day and invited me to create one of the amazing felt ornaments from her brand new, Holiday Stitch-along Ornament Club! I chose to make the Peace Dove Ornament in a pretty Sky Blue wool blend felt and I love how it turned out!
I consider myself a bit of a beginner when it comes to embroidery, but with the handy Stitch Glossary Betz provides with each pattern, the Blanket stitch, French knot, Backstitch, & Lazy Daisy stitch needed, were a cinch!
It came together quick and in the end I had a beautiful, well made, two-sided ornament that I would love to make a few more of! Haila has even asked to make one for herself to hang on her door, which I think is both a great idea and something she could totally do with a little help from me!
It's not to late for you to sign up for Betz's Holiday Stitch-along Ornament Club! This months ornament is scheduled to debut on Betz's blog today. You are welcome to join in any time and will receive patterns for the two already-released ornaments, this Peace Dove and this super, cute Hot Chocolate, along with November's design, and the final ornament on December 2nd!
