Dear blogging friends, I was totally overwhelmed by all your congratulations to us on our wedding anniversary and regarding my woolie pineapple!
THANK YOU doesn't seem enough, so by way of special thanks and my way of letting you know how much I value your visits, I'd like to offer you a freebie pattern I've designed for fall.
It's a candle mat you could make from wool or wool felt or even fabrics of your choice!
It features some applique acorns but you could just as easily do pumpkins or leaves or pears etc!
Here's how mine looks~Here's how it looks with a candle~
Below is the template pattern which I hope you'll be able to download - click to enlarge~
Cut one of each size of oval background fabric.
On the top layer, trace on the words and berry strands and stitch them in in dark colored floss.
(I used 6 strands of DMC dark brown for the words and 3 strands of the same color for the berry strands.)
Stitch on the pip berries using 2 strands of floss doing a French knot.
Using the templates, cut out 4 of each part of the acorns and stitch into position.
Now you are ready to blanket stitch the top layer onto the base layer of your mat, using 3 strands of floss.
Repeat the whole way around the outer edge of your mat.
YOU DID IT!
Admire your handiwork and enjoy in your fall decorating!
Once again, thank you for your thoughtfulness and visits - life has been so blessed since I started blogging!
