I Love You Alphabet Ornament

I found this cute little alphabet sampler ornament on Pinterest last year and I’ve stitched it up twice now. It’s a great design and a super quick stitch, so it makes for a perfect last minute gift.

I think the next one I do, I’ll add beads for the I <3 U part so it stands out even more. The pattern has both lower case and upper case alphabets, you can stitch just one or stitch both and have one on each side of the ornament. Pattern is available PosyCollection.com

Happy Ornament Making!
