seasonal stitching !!

Merry Christmas all.... I hope you had a lovely day !! I thought I would quickly share this little felt bauble with you between the festivities. the background is similar to the Christmas pudding I made before. I cut 2 circles of blue felt, then added a wavey edged semi circle in sparkling white felt to the front piece. I satin stitched along the white and added some French knots as falling snow. using some green and brown embroidery threads, I also added a few trees in the background. I cut out the reindeer using the mini reindeer sizzix mover and shakers die by tim holtz. I then carefully stitched around him to secure him to the bauble. the final step was to stuff and blanket stitch the back and front together, including some matching ribbon at the top for hanging.
