Mistletoe Reindeer - Ornament

Pattern by Sharon Bennett aka It's DaffyCat.
This is my first beaded trim. I must say
it is very pretty. It is a time consuming
project. This was made for a
Reindeer exchange. I adore the design.
Here is the best part, this is a Freebie.
If you would like a copy click here.
If you need instructions on how to
finish a beaded item, Staci has great
instructions at Snippets and Stash.
Click here for instructions. I will have
to make one for myself since this will
be sent to an exchange partner.

Cute reindeer....think you got me to do my teddy bear ornies when I saw all yours on those trees.

Paula said...

Hey Cindy.

I have a question for you. When you make your ornies, do you do the front and back side by side like it'se shown on the page that has the beading instructions?

If so, do you fold them so the area between the F & B is inside the orrnie?

Then, how much fabric do you leave around the three other sides.

Can you tell I have never finished an ornie, but I want to and I love the beaded look.

Paula said...

Your answer was PERFECT! I may place a piece of cardboard (or card stock) inside mine. I want them flat enough (and light enough) that they will fit in an envelope as a Christmas "card."

I may try some soon . . .before I have too many to want to finish :0}
