Finished the beaded scissor fob and free cross stitch pattern

 Free Pattern for Cross stitch fob

Hi everyone, I have finished the beaded Scissor Fob or Christmas Tree Ornament that I started last week, it is a real quick stitch if you wanted to make this as a gift for a friend, you could finish this in a couple of evenings. I was going to put a tassel on the end but did not have enough green thread remaining, I used DMC stranded cotton threads and Mill Hill gold glass beads.
The reverse side is exactly the same design.
The free pattern is now available for you below and you can see how to make a scissor fob by checking out this tutorial on my finishing  blog.

Just right click on the pattern and click “save as” to your computer.

I have finally finished the Peacock Box, gosh I did procrastinate on this one but I am pleased with the result! I will be posting the pictures for this and the accessories that I have made over the next few weeks.
This is a box lid cross stitch to match the scissor fob, if you like the pattern I will make this available also, just ask!   
Welcome to all of my readers, including my new folowers!
Happy stitching!
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.
