Christmas Gift #7

Instead of making my dad’s present, I decided to take a break and make the Christmas cards instead. I followed this to make them, but I did make a variety of substitutions.

For one, the cards are a much lighter shade of blue, mainly because I couldn’t find a darker shade, which would have made it so much better. That and I’ve replaced the cotton yarn with white thread, since the yarn I have is way too big. There’s not much difference and I’m still satisfied with the result, to be honest.

I’ve only made two so far and I haven’t placed the black paper insert yet. The paper to the left is the dot template I’ve been using so I don’t have to measure it over and over again, finally I found some use for my essay from last year.
