I’d hoped to stitch some ornaments for our tree before the holidays were over, but that didn’t quite pan out. However, I did stitch up two ornaments as last-minute gifts. I don’t usually fill-stitch, but since these two were such small projects (they’re in 3″ hoops) I decided to have a go at fill-stitching and am very happy with how they turned out.
I love this singing girl design — it was a freebie Elsa Mora offered on an old blog of hers, and it remains one of my favorite things to embroider.
I realized after I’d finished stitching it that I’d forgotten to trace part of the design — there should be a little bird sitting on top of her head. I think it turned out just fine without the bird, and, honestly, I don’t know that I would’ve had room for it!
For the other ornament, I wanted a Santa, and this design from Urban Threads worked nicely for ornament-size.
