This is actually from a project I did last year, because Mama and Papa S have requested an addition to their decor (which I have yet to work on). For Christmas of 2011 I made all of my relatives ornaments. I was trying to save money and ornaments use things I already have. I made them as personalized as I could. Some of them were embroidered by hand, mostly with backstitching (see my first post ever).
I apologize for the blurriness of the pictures.
I appliqued the star with a blanket stitch. This ornament was for my brother.
I embroidered two little hearts, one outlined (with a backstitch) and one filled in. This ornament was for my sister. She loves moose. The shape is a quatrefoil. It was a little complicated to sew, actually.
I made this for my parents. I made the hearts separately and I sewed them together, then stuffed them.
This is also for my parents. I appliqued the dog with a blanket stitch, just like the star in the picture above.
I know this post is two days late. It’s one of those weeks.
More ornament pictures to come!
