#52tagshannemade week 16

It took me a while to finish the stitching on this tag as theme was seed stitch and I started with really small ones! 

I started with a piece of linen cut from a vintage tea-towel. I then made three Suffolk puffs using fabric from a vintage Liberty pattern handkerchief. I also added 3 flowers cut from a vintage crocheted doily. 

I decided to use two DMC variegated threads for the seed stitch as the stripes of the linen gave three separate areas stitch in. The changes in colour of the thread add interest to the large areas of stitching. 

The next tag will be quicker to stitch.
