My first and last floss tag
Well gang, I had stitched this little guy for the Monthly Finishing Challenge, and during September our challenge was to make a floss tag. This month I've seen some really lovely tags. If you go to the challenge page, you'll see some really neat stuff. And I like my tag, too.
My problem? Cutting that hole in my stitching gave me the willies. I know, I know...we cut away fabric for hardanger, too, but that's different. There are wonderful little kloster blocks giving us a feeling of security. Sticking my scissors in that corner there and making a hole just felt wrong. So I don't think I'll be doing that again...Just call me a weiner.
But if you'd like to test your nerve, Staci has the best tutorial I've seen. Go there if you're courageous....
