Joyful Angels cushion/pillow

Before I start my Santa comming Wall hanging I thought it be nice to show my joyful Angels cushion which is part of a christmas gift for this year. Using gold metalic thread to enhance the halo and instrument strings and adding sead beads for buttons, this gives the fabric panel dimension. Satin stitched by hand using embrodiery thread the noses and simple knots for the eyes. Added red border fabric and then picked out the dark bloue for the cushion back, which is envelope folded for speed and ease of use when washing. Will probably go one step further and add tassles and buttons to the corners.

Happy Stitching!

Cutting perfect sentiment from sheet using dies.

Many a time I have bought a sheet of paper with tons of sentiment that I simply struggled to cut perfectly, especially the round sentiments....
