Using shiny silver fabric, I used an in-the-hoop design of a tag - outline only - and then embroidered the names of the children, and the festival, on the tags. I placed a back layer of the same fabric after I had embroidered the name so that the back would be smooth. I used pinking shears for one effect, and a satin stitch edge on one of them. The silvery side should reflect tree lights and add effect to the tree. Of course the same thing could be done for Christmas, but it is so easy to access Christmas decorations, while Hannukah embellishments are not so easy to find.
Sewing, machine embroidery, paper-craft, and stamping are my hobbies. At the moment die-cutting paper craft is my favorite, and I am sharing my projects with you on this website.
