Good morning! Please allow me to officially introduce the Ice-Skating Afternoon Craft Kit, my limited-edition kit to help you create these three hand-stitched, hand-embroidered felt ornaments, now on sale in my web shop!
Included are the Ice Skate, with a pom-pon for good measure:
The Hot Cocoa Cup, to warm you up:
And the Gingerbread Girl, the sweetest of all:
Each Ice-Skating Afternoon Ornament Craft Kit includes:
9 pieces of wool/rayon blend felt in assorted colors
12 skeins coordinating DMC cotton embroidery floss
3/4 yd rick-rack (for hangers)
2 yd wool yarn (for pom-pon)
Illustrated embroidery tutorial
You will need to have your own:
Wool batting or Polyester Fiber-fill
Sharp embroidery needle
Dressmaker's chalk pencil or fabric marker
Dressmaker's chalk carbon paper
Iron-on transfer pencil
Sharp fabric scissors, paper scissors, and scallop scissors
1/16" diameter hole punch (for apron)
Small pom-pon maker, or small pieces of cardboard
My sincere goal is to be able to offer as many kits as I can possibly make and still get them to you by the end of October. Please order now to insure that you will receive one! If you're just arriving here, please see this post and this one for more general information about these ornaments.
A couple of things to keep in mind:
- As noted, we are in the process of putting these kits together, and they will be shipped to you sometime in October, depending on how quickly we can get everything together.
- More information about how things work in the web shop, including answers to shipping and payment questions, can be found on my FAQ page.
- A downloadable PDF pattern will be available soon for those of you who already have all the supplies you need. Please stay tuned for that — I'm working on it now!
