It has been quite awhile since I have entered a project over at The Shabby Tea Room! I do love red and gingham and was inspired to use my little muslin bags from SU for a quick Christmas gift. The challenge required to use the colors of red, white and brown. Here is the beautiful inspiration photo we were to follow...
I started with a muslin bag and stamped the background with snowflakes. A cup image from Hero Arts was stamped and paper pieced. Gingham ribbon and snowflake placed for added interest. I stitched a little stocking using felt and twine and filled it with candy canes, ivy, and pine cones. I used copics to color inside the cup for the appearance of hot chocolate and applied glossy accents. Hot chocolate mix was placed in a plastic bag inside the muslin bag and tied with ribbon, twine, and a cute little stocking button.
OK, that's all for now, friends. I thank you so much for viewing my project today! Take care and have a wonderful Thanksgiving, hugs!
