Two new finishes

I have two JBW designs finishes to share.
The first one is  Christmas Purse.
I wanted to finish it a little different. This is what I came up with.
I made a pillow using a gold dusted cotton.  With a dark red and gold fabric and the stitched piece, I made a "belt" tied with bows on both sides of the pillow.
I love the design and I think the finish looks very festive.

The second finish is  A Very Merry Christmas.
I finished it as a double flanged mini pillow. I saw some pictures of this kind of pillow finish online but could not find any tutorial. After a while I came up with my version. I am very happy with how it turned out.
I used two shades of green Christmas fabrics, and some gold buttons.

Maybe I will write a tutorial for this finish one of these days. :)
Thanks for stopping by.
