Ladies and Gentlemen, we have an ornament




After much debating on how to finish my first ornament for this project, I decided to let the stitching stand for itself. I made it into a flat hanging ornament and for the trim I coffee-dyed some simple lacy trim. I used my Crop-a-Dile and put an eyelet in the corner to hang the ornament by. Then I simply thread some of the same beads I used on the ornament to make a hanger for it.
I am quite pleased with this and think it will be a nice addition to the tree.

Hmmm, yet another reason to purchase a Crop-a-dile.
The ornament is lovely - you should be proud.
