finished oh snap ornament

 OMG...My Christmas Ornament parade continues with this Cute Gingerbread Man...

Isn't he the most adorble Christmas applique you have ever seen? 

He reminds me of my oldest Child...Mr. Computer Engineer. 

Whenever the conversations with our son go in a "certain direction" and someone in the room is "put in their place"...

Mr. Computer Engineer always says...SNAP!  

Kind of like...Gotcha!

This particular applique design is from Oh Sew Grammie and you will find the direct link here...


I stitched this design using the 4x4 size on a piece of 25 Opalescent Lugana Fabric...made for Cross Stitching. 

Who says you have to follow ALL the rules and only use Regular Cotton Textiles?

I also used a piece of Warm and White 100% cotton batting as a "Stabilizer" of sorts...

it not only serves as the PERFECT permanent hold for the design itself, 

but also gives the design a little bit of "fluff" inside the little wooden frame I put it in!

Now...that's what I call a WIN WIN situation!

After I trimmed the design and batting down to fit the interior of the little wooden frame...

I then mounted it onto a Sticky Board of the same size...

and then I used some Double sided Stitchery Tape to mount it inside the frame itself.

I finished it off with a simple sweet piece of Red and White Bakers Twine around the inside edge...

using Aleene's Tacky Glue and I just LOVE the way it makes the design POP!  

I also replaced the "twine" hanger that the wooden frame came with...

with the same Red and White Bakers Twine...so it will hang nicely from my Christmas Tree!
