I had so much fun stitching these ornaments! Everything you need is included in the kit and there is enough felt, thread and beads to make a treeful of ornaments. I made 5 and you can't even tell anything is missing from my kit!
Each kit comes with it's own color story, so you can pick out the color scheme that you like best. The one I'm working with here is called Elegance.
My first one here is using the purple, dark teal, light teal and cream colored felt. I also added sequins and beads for embellishments. I stitched all of my ornaments with three strands of the DMC floss. A lot of people use the 6 strands as they come, but I feel like my stitches look neater when I use only three.
I just love this shape! This is one of my favorites! I used the light teal for the background on this one and added touches of the purple, dark teal and cream. I did not stuff my ornaments with any fiberfill. I like them better just flat. I considered adding a third layer of felt between them for thickness, but it really didn't need it. They are a nice thickness with just the two layers.
This might be my favorite one of all. I loved the cream colored background with the pretty stitched design in the center, embellished with some sequins and beads. I added ribbon to the top of all of my ornaments and then glued a tiny bow at the top as well.
I think this is a very pretty shape too. I combined one of the just stitching dies along with some of the shapes, and added the beads and sequins. I can't wait to hang these on my tree and share a few with friends!
Here is a photo of all of the items that come with the Elegance Color Story kit.
