#039 "Birthday Bellpulls 1"

Four Framed Mini-Samplers, Bookmarks, or Bellpulls....
SEPTEMBER, OCTOBER, NOVEMBER, DECEMBER!

These fun and quick to stitch mini-sampler designs are dedicated to all those special people who are born in September, October, November or December! The motifs are taken from our very popular Birthday needlerolls, but this time you get all four designs in one leaflet.

You can decide to finish these in several different ways, all inexpensive and easy to do! You can edge them with an edging stitch like the Nun's Stitch or Buttonhole Stitch, or line them with contrasting fabric, to make them into very personalized bookmarks. You can also frame them using small narrow frames and wonderful contrasting matting underneath to show the Hardanger cutting. Finally you can make them into bellpulls, using inexpensive hardware. Enjoy making these as quick gifts, to remember your special friend on her birthday! For your convenience, there are separate Accessory Packs for each Month's design!
