I made these two ornaments for my nieces, Tesla and Joules. (Can you tell their mama is an engineer? ) If you look the “candy cane” type part is their initials, T and J! Finally forced myself to sew them into ornaments today so I can mail them off to Missouri!
Size : Stitched area on each is 2.5 inches x 2.5 inches.
Fabric : 28 ct Evenweave - Light Blue
Pattern : By Fiona Crouch - From CrossStitcher November 2019 Magazine
Time : About 4 days each.
Fun Factor : Pretty fun. I think the designs are super cute. The backstitching really brings it together. For the white I also included a strand of silver so the snow is sparkly when it moves (which you can’t really tell in the picture. )
Changes : None - other than add a bit of sparkle!
And onto photos and close-ups!
Here’s the cutie J ornament for little Joules.
And here’s the T for Miss Tesla! Love this lounging snowman.
It’s hard to tell but each bottom of the snowglobe has 2020 stitched really small.
Thanks for looking! I’m loving doing all these small cross stitch projects for Christmas.
