Ornament Stitching - Perforated Paper



At long last I have finished all of my Christmas stitching (and more importantly, my assembly of my stitched items!). Heck, I've even given most of the items I stitched out already!

These are the ornaments that I made for my parents and my aunt (my godmother). They are stitched on perforated paper, with lots of beads. You stitch two of each, and then stitch them together back to back. I did one set exactly the way the pattern called for (it was an old magazine) and then the other set I used the same patterns but in different colors. (Hence the two at the bottom that are one red and one blue in the same pattern). If you look at the others you'll notice doubles of each one. They each got one set of 4.

I gave my parents theirs yesterday (we had our family Christmas at my brother and sister-in-law's house). My aunt's had to be mailed to her, so the jury is still out on those!!!

Was it an old Cross Stitch and Country crafts, by BH and G? If so, I might have to go searching......
