Simple stitches comes to life~~

....Greetings friends & happy Friday~

I thought I would show you how I took simple stitches and brought them to life....

I knew when I received duplicate stitches from my dear friend Terri, I would be creating a complimenting set of some type..... So, I used one of the stitches in the main finish, while using the other stitch in an accessory piece~ Let me show you what I mean.....

This cute witches silhouette became the centerpiece of a fabric Diddie bag.... And, the matching witch was made into a detachable ornament.... Or, bag tag~

image
The back of the dangling bag tag is appliqu├ęd with a wool star~

image
Pinning the bag tag makes it more portable, to be used on her Halloween tree..

image
A flat cushion.... With simple edging~

image
Rounding out the three piece set, a Boo! pincushion... Stained and distressed within an inch of its life..... **sigh**


image
This ensemble will look nice as a grouping.... Or scattered separately among her other decorations~ Thank you Terri for giving me full creative reign to bring your beautiful stitches to life!!

Enjoy your weekend~
