Floss Ring Tags continue.....

This will be my last week of Floss Ring Tags, I may work on a few here and there in 2009. I need to go back on my designing for a new Romantic Collection that will come out in January 2009.I got a new digital camera for christmas but it is so different than the old one that I need to spend some time learning how to use it. I need a camera that has the "macro" function for close up pictures.

I did not stitch all these tags, some of them are from stitched pieces that I have done years ago, but I did stitch a few of them. I did the eyelets using the crop-a-dile tool and used trims. The floss tag finishing are easy and they are great for gifts and exchanges. I did a detailed step by step tutorial yesterday and here it is:

I do carry most of the supplies on my web site:

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas holiday and Happy new year.

Initials from a booklet by Gloria and Pat. I love this Threadworx 10372 Kaleb's Cherry Patch. This is my all time favorite color by Threadworx. Stitching is done one over one thread.

From a french designer C Leory, DMC 814:

This is for me to keep, JBW design, stitching one over one using Carrie's Thread "Holly day"

My first try on Floss Ring Tags

If you are a regular blog readers, you have seen many floss ring tags on blogs, here are my version:

I made this one into an ornament for my son:

I have more information on how to make the floss ring tags and an overview of the supplies in my design blog:

All the John James Regular needles 26, and 28 in bulk are in stock. The petite needles for 26 and 28 in bulk had came in as well. They are cheaper than buying the needles in packages. If you do a lot of stitching on 32 counts and up and stitching one over one, you should try the petite needles. It makes a world difference.

Have a wonderful week and thank you for visiting my blog.
