The Floss Tag




After much ado, I have finished my first Floss Tag/Pin Keep. This will be my year of firsts: I finished my first Altoid tin and now my first Floss Tag all since the beginning of the year.
I finished stitching this piece on New Year's Eve. It is called Heart Diamond. It is in honor of February, which is Women's Heart Health Month. It is a gift for a friend.
I also got to use my new Crop-A-Dile I received from my DD for Christmas. I used a heart shaped eyelet on it.
I backed it with some really pretty red fabric I caught on sale at JoAnn's. I put some purple trim on it with some pretty pearl pins.
This was a joy to do!

Joy said...

Very pretty!! I don't have a Crop-a-dile...yet :-)...but I have made a couple of floss tags and they are fun to make!!! Funny how as we learn new finishes, we look at patterns differently or for patterns we can make into something new we have learned. Keep sharing!
