It's not my first floss ring tag but it is my first with an eyelet following Staci's wonderful tutorial! I was going to use my Crop-A-Dile but instead used my Prym Vario Pliers for piercing both the hole and setting the eyelet and I have to say I think they did both jobs brilliantly. The pliers come with the attachments for piercing holes which can be removed to attach the appropriate fittings for setting eyelets, etc. The fittings are included in the Prym eyelet packs.
The design is Bird & Flower, a complimentary design from Chessie & Me currently in the May 2009 Stitchville USA newsletter. The May newsletter is still up on the Stitchville USA website but may not be for much longer. I've changed the fabric to 40ct Flax Newcastle Linen stitching 1 over 2 using the listed Gentle Art Sampler Threads. I added the tiny date with 1 over 1 backstitch.
Thanks again for popping by. :o)
