March 2021

Country Christmas Ornament

This is a “Take Home a Program” from MAR, taught to us by our Region Rep, Heather. Get an early start on next Christmas or change up the colors for a different holiday (St. Patrick's Day, Easter, Independence Day...).

Ornaments not your thing? Make yourself a lovely scissors fob!

There is no fee for this class, and sign-up is not necessary. Gather the materials you need (use your own stash) and bring your questions to the March meeting.

Materials:

  • 9" X 5" piece of 18-count Davosa, other even-weave, or Aida. You can also substitute your choice of count (higher counts will make a smaller ornament)

  • 2 colors DMC #8 Perle Cotton (#700 and #321 are used in the model)

  • 3" square piece of cardboard

  • Small amount of batting or stuffing

  • Size 24 tapestry needle

  • 3-4" embroidery hoop

  • Straight pins
