I made sure they would work with one of my all time favorite stitching dies, the Stiched Frame Collection. There's just something about felt and a photo for me. I just think the combo makes the most adorable gifts. My favorite holiday gifts to make and give are felt ornaments like this one.
I opted to sew in two lengths of red baker's twine to use as a closure. They are knotted once on each side to keep them from slipping out.
And there's one of my favorite faces! I used the photo opening in the Stitched Frame to cut openings and stitching holes for a photo and a card stock panel. I got to incorporate some stamping into this project. Love the fusion. The paper stitched in gives some rigidity to the project and it stands up on its own like this.
This little beauty is going to Hank. Would make a great keepsake for a grandparent too.
That's it for me tonight:). Hope you are having a good one.
