God Bless America
The God Bless America cross-stitched ornament is made using high-quality repurposed fabrics. The red and white sparkled fabric is a remnants from stilt pants I made a professional clown several years ago!
The lovely blue is a calico print that was a dress that belonged to my sister-in-law. She’d begun to take it apart in order to reuse it herself but she reached a point where she could no longer sew. I was offered her fabric stash with no instructions other than do what I wanted!
The God Bless America ornament joins my other patriotic ornaments using the same and similar fabrics (until I run out!) so can coordinate beautifully and harmoniously. These are so much fun to make and coming from a military family myself, I think of those in my family who have served this country proudly!
The pearl beads and foam ball providing the shape were purchased from a small, woman-own business, Ornament Girls. The Ornament Girls site provides a free tutorial for the the ribbon, ideas for adding embellishments.
These ornaments made with several pins and should be kept away from small children and pets.
