Description

This is for a Christmas Ornament swap on another board I belong to.  The pattern is old, from around 1977.  The designs are meant for hand stitching, but after I transferred the plate to the felt, I free-hand embroidered the flowers and leaves.   My Elna Lotus works really nicely for free hand embroidery.  You need a steady hand and patience, but it is really fun once you get going. 

I then satin stitched around the edge, leaving a bit open for stuffing and then finished the satin stitching.

Cord is crocheted from green perle cotton.

Very cute! How lucky that your Elna is such a work horse!

Very nice! I was going to ask you where you got the machine embroidery design for this. Guess I'll have to try it free hand!

This is beautiful. And I love that it's not typical Christmas colors....it's an ornament that can be out all year. Very nicely done.
