- So much back stitch! I left it out in the old tags, but I usually hate that I know things would have looked better if I had done the back stitch.
- So much time and effort for such a small project. I spent days on these things and just had tiny tags to show at the end.
- I'm pretty sure everyone probably just binned them when I put them on gifts, which is fair enough, but I spent ages on them guys!
So yesterday morning I sat down to this.
I made all 16 tags in one sitting! I was so much happier about that, as if I'd done it the old way I'm pretty sure I would have made one if I was lucky. I say 16, but I only have 15 to show, as there was one which I wasn't very happy with anyway, and I cut the edge too close and split it open. Oh well, it was the only one I would have been happy losing.
So these are the 15 I ended up with. I'll post the links to any patterns I used beside each photo.
Joy and Xmas - Created using this awesome cross stitch writing tool.
Four snowflakes - all four patterns from Nuts About Needlepoint.
Star and heart gift tag - I took little elements from this Christmas pattern for these tags.
Heart tag - heart cross stitch pattern. Stocking tag - stocking perler bead. Star tag - I used part of this star motif. Reindeer tag - reindeer cross stitch pattern.
This project is a step towards completing my New Year's List for 2015. You can check out my progress here.
