Halloween Mail Art - Sent


Hello Peeps!!

I believe my partner has now received my little package,
so it is about time I show you my latest finish.


oOoOo


I sent my Halloween creation to Joanne

Now, I know this lady is particularly fond of Halloween stitching,

I thought she deserved something special and a little different.


oOoOo


I have opted for
Halloween Purse

Stitched on Permin 16ct aida fabric, sage colour.
Used all preconized DMC colours, including light effects/glow in the dark & beads

I've added a matching piece of cotton fabric for the inner
and assembled my work using the biscornu method




There was much more work than anticipated on this model
I have worked on it on & off since July


Front

Back


Side 1


Side 2

I sadly forgot to take a picture of the top & bottom... there are stitched paw prints too!

All the hard work was worth it!

I am really pleased with my finished piece.
I am sure Jo will treasure it.




Included in the purse were a few goodies
(chart, threads, rubber pumpkin, Lego Monsters Mini Fig & choccies)
that, in my haste to send off, I forgot to take pictures of.

Until my next post,
Toodles,
Mii
