Santa Heart progress

Step six in the Santa Heart is to use Petite Very Velvet and stitch it in a Double Stitch variation. Then, red glass seed beads are added into the empty spaces. Janet recommended that the beads be double stitched, and I concur. I did a cross stitch x thru the beads which enabled me to ensure that the beads were sitting properly in the empty space.

Then, the hat and the pompom are stitched in Artic Rays. The area is padded horizontal using the trame' method and then covered vertically for the padded effect.

As always, Janet gives very clear instructions with detailed diagrams, which are very easy to follow.
