I am now able to reveal what I made in" The Christmas In July Ornament Swap". My swap partner was Maya who lives in Norway. My parcel only took a week to get there which I think is great. I wish I could go to Norway, after looking up on the net seeing all the beautiful scenery. First I made a "Peace" banner which is from Natalie Ross's new book. I changed it a little by putting the wadding inside and turning the material through. In Natalie's design it was sewn a little bit differently.I also made my triangles a bit bigger.
The reason they were bigger because the banner is reversible. This is the back of the banner with the machine embroidery on it. I showed you a sneak peak in a previous post. I used the Lana No.12 wool embroidery thread in this. You fluff the design up afterwards.
I made a "Goodie Bag" to hold everything in. This is from Natalie's book as well.
I also made Maya a Needle Case with her name embroidered on it. She tells me this is her favourite.
I also added in a card of "Christmas" buttons in red and green. I really enjoyed doing this swap. I would like to thank Terri for organising this. You did a great job.
Back soon with another swap that I have received and I am sure there will be some sewing.
