This one was for the Favorite Country Song patch swap.
I chose "I'm Going to Hire a Wino to Decorate Our Home". A fabulous ditty from 1982.
The song's all about a woman who's pissed at her hubby for spending his paychecks at the bar, so instead of getting in a fight (again) with him she just decides they should remodel their house to be a bar so the hubby can come there instead.
"I'll serve hard-boiled eggs and pretzels, and I won't cook no more."
I got the egg jar image online and just free handed the pretzels. Super simple but fun.
The next patch was for a Christmas ornament patch swap.
Pretty simple design but i just wanted to show off the cute fabric.
I embroidered around the mittens and then lightly stuffed them to get some texture. Then a few sequins and beads for the holly berries and that's that.
I didn't show off either of the backs because they're pretty simple. The kitty patch's back is a winter print but it's white on white (snowflakes if memory serves) so it's very subtle.
For the ornament swap I also had to include a patch kit. So fabric and trims/baubles. It had to be wrapped so I wrapped it in fabric and pins.
Both of these are getting mailed out Friday.
