From this....(thank you husband)
to THIS....ta da...
I finished the stitching a week ago but have been waiting to get a little bit of green trim to finish the front of the sack off...I teamed a little green ribbon I got today with some Alannah Hill cotton lace I had at home...I really like it except for the puckering around the letters...this is a little annoying and can be seen on Amelie's sack too...the next stitchery I do I will back first with interfacing...thank to advice from Chaotic Jupiter...keep an eye out on her blog for some AWESOME stitcheries she has been doing!
A peek at the green lining
'Oh my darlin'...'
Amelie's Santa Sack I designed and made in 2008
A peek at the back and as you can see there is a casing where I had red velvet ribbon to pull it shut but I have discarded it this year as I thought it was too much!
So now they are all ready to be laid out for Santa in a weeks time...I can almost hear the sleigh bells now!
