Chili Peppers and Stockings



Here are my gifts I have been giving to my tatting friends. The stockings are filled with little things with their initials on them. These are nice, quick patterns from http://www.thisntat.com/motifs/a.html . Red Chilies are New Mexico's number one crop. The pattern was drawn out and made from felt with Lizbeth jellybean edging. For the needle holder I added another felt inside with a needle and a holder for the needle threader.

Very Clever. I've often thought of tatting up chili peppers. I was so disappointed in the green chili crop not doing well this year. We usually buy a 25 lb bag and then freeze and send as gifts to our family in California. I should take some photos of the decorations I made with Colcha Embroidery (Santos mostly) on one side and a tatted motif on the reverse. Made from Felt pieces. It is a no-sew pattern using pinking shears and glue. The 'sewing' is attaching the tatting and doing the colcha embroidery. Happy Holidays, Bev

Those are all too cute! The chili peppers gave me a good chuckle.

What a cute idea! The stockings with the tatted initials is a great little gift!! And I love your Red Chilies! The Jellybean color is perfect for this project.

There are chili pepper roasters on every street corner but not this year. Hope there is a better crop next year! I would love to see the Colcha Embroidery. I was going to teach the class but these girls are way into tatting!!! I keep checking your site for the pics. Linda
