Animal themed tags to remind you not to peek at those gifts until Christmas! These gift tags become gifts themselves as ornaments. They can be personalized for your recipient, an alphabet is included with the pattern.
This pattern was stitched on 28 count evenweave, but could easily be done on aida. I would consider this pattern suitable for ambitious beginners or intermediate stitchers - there is one French knot on each tag to dot the "i" in "til", and the horse tag uses several French knots and metallic thread. There are also French knots on the back for the colons and also if you use lower case letters for personalization. The knots could be replaced by beads or by a small backstitch (for the "i"). Written instructions are included for ornament construction. The ornaments are approximately 2.75"x4.1". The included template shape for the ornaments is sized for 28 count (14 count) only.
