Beaded Blackwork Ornament

This pretty blackwork ornament is for Canada Stitches‘ ornament drive; they are fundraising for Ladybird Animal Sanctuary and Annex Cat Rescue. The designs are from Box of Delights by Elizabeth Almond and the floss is American Snow Cone by Fiberlicious.

To make the ornament a little cushy, I attachedΒ a piece of felt onto the backs with iron-on fusing.

The ornament front and backs are whip-stitched together, just under the stitches but not through the material.

I added a bead every other stitch for a pretty edge, a loop of beads for a hanger, and a beaded fringe to finish.
