Reversing August 23rd, 2007

Christmas buttons and charmsMy Christmas charms and Buttons are stord in a shallow box that originally held some fancy christmas cards, I have lined one segment of it with match box trays so that I can see most of the charms at a glance.

An embroidered iron on tree took my fancy but the colours were to bright for this stocking so I painted it with acrilic paints…I like the result and it will look lovely stitched on with metalic thread and beads for decoration..but not on the green background where I was planning to put it…

Painted christmas charm

christmas stocking with original topMy next thought was to choose a trim to go across the top, which I did but when I pinned it in place I decided that I really did need to change the top to be a darker red to balance the colours that I used on the heel and toe of the stocking…

I have done the reverse sewing necessary to remove the top that was there but chooseing a new top and stitching it on is going to have to wait until tomorrow.

    Love the storage idea. Wondering where you used so many matches. =) I never would have thought to use acrylic on the tree, but it looks great. On the toe, maybe? I agree that the top looks too bright when compared to the burgundy reds at the bottom. This is coming along so nicely, though, and it’s looking beautiful!

    Clever way to store your Christmas charms and buttons. I like that.
