Charming Bat

Remember me mentioning smalls yesterday? Well, I’m not just working on them for the Smalls SAL. (The next check-in is on June 24th! Don’t forget.) I finished up this little design last week.

It is a small kit from Xs and Ohs from their Halloween Charmings line. It includes the chart, ghost charm, a length of Kreinik Facets, and finishing instructions. I stitched mine on some random black linen using DMC variations in colourway 4122 Fall Harvest. There are four designs in the series, and a free chart for a border design is available on the Xs and Ohs website.

Amazingly, I have actually finished this into a proper ornament! I laced the fabric to the boards and then stitched it all together by hand. No glue! (I use comic book bag boards. They are acid free and available very cheaply at your local comic book shop or online. Buy the no-name ones, not the branded ones.) The hanger is simple twisted cord, and I stitched the included Kreinik Facets around for the trim.

I think  my little Halloween tree is going to look very nice this year. 😀
