We've launched another challenge over on Let's Craft and Create and the theme this fortnight is a splash of colour...
I've gone for a splash of red to make these embroidered Christmas gift tags. It's one of those ideas you see in a magazine and think 'I wish I'd thought of that'. But sadly no, I dind't think of this one. It caught my eye in one of the many Christmas craft magazines on the newsagent's shelves this month.
An opportunity to use some of the many embroidery stitches on my sewing machine. Up until now I'd only used straight stitch and zigzag. I would recommend trying each the stitch pattern out on scrap card first and adjusting the stitch length and width to ensure the stitches are not too close together. Otherwise, you'll just create a tear or hole on the card.
The kraft paper bags were made from parcel wrap and the gingham ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl.
Check out the blog to see some gorgeous splash of colour designs from the rest of the team and the prize for one lucky entry. The challenge closes on 11th December.
