I was inspired by the mascot on their school t-shirt seen here.
And I found a similar Tiger design on DailycrossStitch.com. Here is my first start...
But I realized that on the 14 count yellow Aida this was going to be WAY too big for an ornament finish like I had envisioned. Then I got the great idea to just do the Tiger's face and then add the year and the Teachers names!
This was my 3rd Finish. I started it on May 1st and finished stitching it on May 15th.
This was my 4th Finish. I started it on May 14th and finished it on May 16th.
For my 5th finish I was starting to run out of time so I chose a smaller apple design from Daily Cross Stitch. I started it on May 16th and finished it on May 22nd.
My 6th finish was another apple :) I started this one on May 19th and finished on May 22nd.
For the apples I used hand dyed cotton floss from Mo's Sale.
I was able to finish them into ornaments just in time for the last day of the school year in May!
Here are the fronts...
And here is a view of the back teacher themed fabric.
The Teachers loved them and they were fun to make as a small thank you for all of the time spent helping mold my children's education :) I have a few more finishes to show you so I will be back soon. Until then...Happy Stitching!
