Liberty!



Hello Friends!

I finished up another one of these patriotic easel pieces today, this time using a pattern from Homespun Elegance. I've been in a patriotic stitching mood lately (I have three more UFOs on my table right now) and I just love the look of them with that black and tan homespun fabric.



I found this chalkboard easel at Michaels, and I loved the white-washed effect it had. I covered the chalkboard with some black and tan homespun, and then mounted the stitched piece on top. The sides are edged with twine, and then I made some bows out of patriotic and polka dot ribbon. Then I made a cover button out of some red and black polka dot fabric and added that to the center.

STITCHY DETAILS:

Pattern: Liberty Parade
Designer: Homespun Elegance
Liberty Parade - Cross Stitch Pattern
Fabric: 32 ct Vintage Country Mocha Lugana
Colors Used: DMC 930, 3777, 611, 729, 3371, 3011, White

Thanks for stopping by!

Super patriotic finish, Alissa! Love the use of the backing fabric and ribbon with your piece on that easel. Well done!
