Quaker Bird Ornament


When I designed this ornament a ton of use ideas came to me.  Of course the first was to make it into an ornament.  The second idea was to make it into a wedding or anniversary gift tag.  The third was a pincushion. . . . . . . . an so on and so on!  Originally I designed it as a monochromatic design so it can still be stitched that way.  Just choose your favorite color and off you go.  

To finish it I used two pieces of foam core.  The one is wrapped with the stitched design and the back piece with a neutral fabric.  Glue the "sandwich" together and trim with a ribbon.  I dotted mine with long pearl pins and attached a fluffy bow on top.

Happy Stitching,
Diane
