Homespun Holiday Keepsake Ornaments Kit


 Hello! I am thrilled to be showcasing a beautiful new stitching kit by Lizzie Jones! 

Who doesn't enjoy the holiday season, homes dressed with twinkle lights and special baubles that we see but once a year? Our debut stitching kit features four ornament shaped dies and a wide array of embellishments to make creating those special, heirloom ornaments a joy. The possibilities with this kit are truly endless! From 100% wool felt to a carefully curated collection of beads and sequins, everything you need to make beautiful ornaments arrives right to your door in one convenient package. The hardest part is choosing your favorite Color Story! This kit even includes needles, ribbon for hanging, and a zippered project bag so you can keep your works-in-progress safe and tidy. You'll be amazed how easy it can be to create holiday magic for your own home or to give to those you love!

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. 


The kit retails for $150. The Color Stories will also be available separately and they will retail for $50. You can find out more details at Poshta Design.
The kit goes live at 9am ET on Friday (10/16). 

 Lizzie will be giving away a kit to one lucky winner! The winner will be drawn from comments on all of the participating designers blogs! So be sure to leave me a comment and comment on the other participating designer's blogs!

These are the other designers who have created some beautiful projects with this new kit!


I hope you have enjoyed my projects today! Enjoy the rest of your week and weekend!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs,

Kay :)
