A little birdie

told me that he wanted to be a floss ring tag :) And because I'm the accomodating sort, I dropped everything and did just that!

I love this little birdie, he's such a cutie. And I'm not the only one...check out Becky's adorable pinkeep! And if you're looking for the book, here it is on Amazon......like I said, I try to be accomodating LOL ;)

And FYI, once you get over the whole putting a hole in your cross stitch...those ring tags are easy and super-fun (and addictive) to make!!! You may need one for every WIP ;) You've been warned, LOL!!!

Absolutely adorable, Staci, and what a neat idea! I guess I will have to go check out the book. You ARE quite the enabler!

It's gorgeous Staci! I love the red! Becky did a great job on her little pinkeep too. I may need to go looking for this book! The little button and the charm really give it a little something extra :)

Once I find the tool I need for the eyelets I hope to give these a try myself. You're so good at them! And again, thank you for the tutorial.

Ranae said...

That is the cutest! I love the floss ring and your pinkeep, both superb finishes.

Between you and Becky, I now have got to find this book! And, I love, love, the floss ring tags!! I can see myself having one to match every fob... LOL I had my son look for the eyelet kit, and he found it at Hobby Lobby. Now to stitch some up!

Have a great day... I'm enjoying reading your blog.

Myrna :-)

Now to find an eyelet kit.

Addictive indeed. I'm working on my second, the first was just too much fun... if you don't count the freaky part where you have to butcher the fabric to put in the eyelet...LOL!! Thank you for the inspiration, Staci!!

BeckySC said...

Oh MY!!! I just love it, Staci :) Great job :)

Von said...

I have some cool eyelets in my papercrafting stash that would be great on a floss tag. You've inspired me and so many many other stitchers that we're forever grateful. :D

Michele said...

I sooo need that book! lol .. love the little birdie :)

Dora said...

Beautiful bird! You inspired me in your previous blogs to make a floss ring and I am almost done. Just have to finish stitching one side...then the hole. I'm a little weary about that but I'm going to give it my best. They are adorable and so much fun. I used a freebie from Glory Bee called "Home Sweet Home."
