New Christmas door hanger give-away-new stuff!!



I finished my new pattern for my Jingle as Ye Enter door hanger/wall hanging. It would look good on either one. It is a quick finish and very easy. The back is an envelope style so there is no hand stitching a seam closed after you turn it right side out. I did a simple 1" fold over to the back and whipped stitched it down as a sleeve for a wood dowel. I used simple red bias ribbon for a hanger and bows. I stitched this on 32ct Belgian linen in an antique champagne shade. I over dyed some dark Christmas red, green and gold floss and a nice medium brown for the birds. I love the nice quality little brass bells that the birds hold dangling on a string from their beaks. I used a dark red fabric for backing and a layer of fusible fleece to back the stitched piece to give it lots of body.
*****A BONUS  with this pattern is that you can make an ornament from the bird in the upper left corner. That extra pattern is included along with 6 small antique brass bells (2 for the ornament and 4 for the door hanger). The bells along the bottom are optional and sold separately ($2) or use your own. I wanted to do a pattern that could be primitive if you used a darker fabric or antique a fabric with coffee or tea staining. I wanted the brighter colors for my décor.
The finished size is 8" wide by 10-1/2" tall without the hanger.
Remember....this is a chart with bells and not a whole kit. I may offer some kits next week in my ebay store. They will be $29.99. Stay tuned as I will announce that next week if you want a kit. It will have everything but the wood dowel for hanging. You could actually just use the ribbon to hang this as it has lots of body.

Lots of details!!  The pattern for both the door hanger and ornament will be $10.99 plus postage and includes the 6 little bells. This will have to go in a padded envelope. This is charted for DMC floss. 
*****BONUS***** The first 100 charts that I sell will include all the over dyed floss in the colors shown to complete the door hanging and the ornament! email nbelgian@aol.com if you want one.

The Give-away! Lets get the Christmas spirit rolling.....Lets give away 5 charts with floss and bells!
