Final Sleigh Ride of 2015
Not much to show today, but I did decide to do one final small gift for a friend who really appreciates these little stitched goodies. This flat fold pattern is "Sleigh Ride", a Winter Snapperland design from Bent Creek. I love that little guy all bundled up and riding in his one-horse sleigh. It always amazes me how much personality can be displayed in so few stitches. The fabric is 32 count bone jobelan. Maybe a slight color change somewhere, but basically I used the recommended colors. Skipped the snap and substituted a gold bead to suggest Jingle Bells. And I added a couple of star-shaped buttons. The cording is purchased. The backing fabric was a stray fat quarter I bought in the fabric shop some time ago on a whim. It's only in the photos that the cord looks so misplaced on the top back. I didn't notice that at all on the finished piece. Of course, it's there, but not so prominent. Just ignore it please.
