Hmm.... I don't know how I didn't get this on here before. This is a candle-mat that I made for a friend, for Christmas, last year. It's wool-felt. Now I see I should've taken some close-up pictures of the embroidery, but that's not really anything special. Everything is outlined with a blanket-type-stitch....I say "blanket-type" because it doesn't have the running stitch (so to speak) along the edge; only the stitches that come in from the edge.
Anyway, these are super easy and fun to do! It's a pattern by Bareroots.
They have various designs, for various seasons and holidays. You can have a look at some of their patterns here:
All for now.....
