Star Felt Ornament

Another felt ornament swap is in the mail. This one for a star shaped ornament is now on it's way to it's new home in the US. I wanted a rounded tip star shape and found a pattern for one here at Allsorts. I copied the image into Corel Draw and sized the image to the dimensions I was interested in. The dark blue felt is wool Melton cloth while the accents are acrylic because that's all I had on hand. Accent shapes are stitched on with a blanket stitch in 3 strands of embroidery floss. I thought the little bird was cute, but it also could be embellished with embroidery flowers, or needle felted like the red heart shaped ornament of last months swap.

I was the lucky swap partner to receive this delightful ornament. It is as beautiful in real life as it is on the computer. Lovely work!
