I had a BLAST stitching this little cutie pie! I don’t often stitch something for myself. Usually I’m stitching for a club or a class piece. But I just loved this guy and wanted to stitch him without any future plans. But, there has been such an interest in this piece that I’m offering a Zoom class on March 20th. . . assuming the canvases come in on time.
There is a TON of beading in this piece. If you know me at all, I’m not a big fan of beading. But . . .if I think that’s what should be done then I’ll do it.
I think my favorite part of the piece is the peppermint button on his coat.
I love doing felt applique. (Thank you Kelly Clark for turning me on to it!) I knew he needed little elf shoes and I think they turned out pretty cute.
The cupcake has some fun techniques like gathered stitch with beads on top. I had these sequins in my stash and they were the perfect size. Yes . . .more beading but SO worth it!
I’ve got second Nutcracker on bars waiting to go. I can’t do just one. Gotta have a pair!
If you want to sign up for the class or purchase the kit you can call the shop or sign up online.
Wow, what beautiful work. I would love to learn how to do that. Amazing! Thanks for sharing.
