Last week I posted about card inserts so today I’m going to talk about stitched gift tags.
Personally, I love the idea of a stitched gift tag. I don’t give cards all that much anymore but I do add gift tags to all my gifts. So, how about some stitched gift tags!
This particular sample measures around 2 ½ inches. Once again it is one element of a pattern designed by Tracy Horner of Ink Circles. Make sure you visit her site if you enjoy cross stitch. She has a beautiful selection of patterns.
Dominique has chosen a pale yellow linen. Several of the ladies frequent the thrift stores so this linen was picked up on one of these shopping trips. This sample is stitched with Colour #120 which is a brilliant blend of greens, blues and purple. She has used 2 strands of floss.
I think the diamond shape of this design is lovely. Lots of opportunity to add to it or stitch several below and above forming a row.
Since many of us have been spending more time than usual at home….
It’s a great time to stitch some gift tags.
Thank you D.
