~ Greetings and Warm Welcome to ~
I showed you a the finish of the 2014 Prairie Schooler Santa...
but I neglected to mention that I finished a second Santa while I was in California.
It was the 2015 Prairie Schooler Santa and yesterday I finished them.
Here they are right before I slapped them on my Prairie Schooler Santa Tree.
I finish all of my Annual Santas the same - red pillow ticking on the back, grosgrain red ribbon for the bow and hanger. I also make a little initial and year patch that I tack on the back with a dot of fabric glue, so that when I die, my family can see when I stitched these ornaments. I do this to all of my ornaments that I have stitched.
Have you heard the old adage....
"Less is More"
In my opinion, The Prairie Schooler Santa's speak to this adage. They don't need any jazzing up, because they are beautiful and jazzy all by themselves. Simple is best in a lot of things. This being one of them.
For your viewing pleasure...
I have created a tutorial that shows exactly how I make a "Simple Pillow Ornament".
Simple and Perfect with my "secrets" shared for your own finishing prowess to grow.
