DMC Freebie Pattern
DMC floss used
Stitched on Natural Linen
This is the first ornment I have ever made. I have always admired them but never sewed one together. After veiwing so many beautiful handstitched ornaments on trees this season on various blogs, I felt I should give it a go. I have cross stitched ornaments, but I used to put them in tiny small frames and then hang those on the tree. After seeing Faye's coffee ornament for a friend, I knew it would be a perfect gift for one of my dear friends whose birthday was just a couple of weeks ago. She loves coffee SO much, and I had it in mind that she could hang this off of the doorknob on her pantry door in her kitchen.
Here is the backing fabric. I loved the swirls in the design and copied Faye's idea of using a swirl background to back it, and used a silver and copper colored bead at the base of the gingham ribbon.
Here it is hanging on MY closet door! I did choose other colors for the cup itself, and used two different colors of floss to make the "froth". Thank you Faye for sharing with us your design! I just love how it turned out!
