During the second week, the color was green. I made two embroidered gift tags. The Dala horse is based on a traditional Swedish folk-art motif and was from a contemporary Swedish craft book. The tree is from an embroidery book in which the author/artist created designs and items for every color.
Each of the tags is made from 100% wool felt and embroidered with cotton floss. After I embroidered the design and cut out the horse or tree, I cut out a matching piece of watercolor/drawing paper. I glued the paper onto the felt design using fabric glue.
After letting that dry, I strung some embroidery floss through the embroidered design and paper. The tags can either be used to embellish gifts and/or hung on a Christmas tree to be enjoyed year after year.
