1 * 2 Buckle my shoe~~~~

When my LNS recently sent me my order to me, there was this cute little shop free-bee from La-D-Da enclosed that I just HAD to stop and make..... I just love La-D-Da anyway and the thread quickly came to mind....A few months back, my dear friend Linda (stitch hag..) had graciously given me some Carrie's Creation threads to try....I went straight to "Olde Salem Red" silk floss and this little baby took no time to make.....

I had some funky shaped little red buttons on hand that seemed to fall right into the theme of things.......


I love attaching rick-rack once the little pillow is made.... and this homespun looking backing fabric was screaming for a little rick racky trim..........


So, there you have it..~~ I have the perfect person in mind for this little pillow....That is if it doesnt land in my "reds" basket and refuse to come out..... If so, I will be making another one of these little diddies!!

Have a great Tuesday evening everyone,

Faye

That is so, so darling! Do you attach the rick-rack just on the points? I so want to get as good at finishing as you are! It may not ever happen, but I'll have fun trying at least!

I think it's a keeper in the red basket and since it was a quick stitch, and the perfect person does not know how perfect they are then whose to know. What a fun piece.
Be always in stitches.
