Cardinal Punchneedle ~ Complete!

I had so much fun completing my latest punchneedle project that I showed you last week.

I decided to sew my latest piece into an ornament.

It was so easy. I just pulled out some vintage fabric and a ribbon and some polyfil and a few stitches later...
Voila! Christmas in July :)
The punchneedle kits are so fun and easy to do. I like that they are small and can be turned into sachets, magents, bookmarks, ornaments or embellishment patches for larger projects you are creating.

Tomorrow I will show you the final sun squares I just shipped to Knit-A-Square and tell you about the next project they have asked for help on in July.

Melissa - the ornament came out just beautiful! Cardinals are so pretty especially in the winter when their pretty red color is in contrast to the snow.

That is a really cool ornament. You are so cool. We also like the Etsy help tool. It is hard to always stay on top of things and it is great to have help.
