A few days ago my husband asked me to mend a rip in his coat. So I got out the needle and thread and did my best at making this repair. Granted it's not as great as my Mom would of done (she was a seamstress) but it didn't look all that bad. A few days later another repair on a different item needed to be sewn together. This one at least looked a bit better.
So I got to thinking. It has been a while since I have done any stitching work. I decided to look through my unfinished beading projects to see what I could find. Being that Christmas is just around the corner, I chose a kit that I picked up from Beadin' Mon! last year during the Christmas Holiday Season.
Kits are great. I like kits because a few reasons, first they usually contain all the necessary beads and instructions needed to complete a project. Another reason I like kits is that you get to try out or practice a new technique. The only problem I can think of is if you get stuck you have to wait till you go into the shop and ask for help.
Here is my ornament that I created from a kit. I think it turned out pretty good. I had done this technique before, but it had been awhile, so it became a refresher course for me. And I got to thinking about my ornaments that I wanted to make for my family members. I may be able to create my own design instead of looking for a pattern to purchase. Well, I will think about this a bit longer.
Remember when working on bead stitching projects: make sure your thread is not "hung up" on any portion of your project. I did catch a few of these while making this, but luckily I noticed pretty early and was able to fix it with no problems.
Well, I hope your liked my Christmas Ornament kit. Remember to stop by Beadin' Mon! for all your beading supplies. Or shop our online store at www.beadinmon.com. So during this holiday season, I hope you take time to create some holiday cheer. Until next time, Happy Beadin'
