Amuse-Bouche Swap

I signed up for the December Phat Quarter swap despite being completely swamped with Christmas crafting. And in typical fashion, I signed up without any ideas at all of what I would do.

According to the swap page:

What is an amuse-bouche? It’s a scrumptious little hors d’oeuvre. A stand-alone treat for your taste buds. Literally, one could translate it from the French as a “mouth amusement.”

In our stitchy case, let’s define it as a tiny visual (rather than a taste) treat.

Josh suggested that the laser cut pendants fit the description quite well, so I stitched one up.
This is the small circle pendant from Beadeux and I really like how the geometric pattern translated to being so small. I started feeling though that maybe it was a little too small, so I decided to make a matching piece that could go on the wall.
I drew up a pattern that enlarged the pendant into something that would fit in a 3inch embroidery hoop. I bought some of these at Michael’s awhile ago and hadn’t used them yet. I love the size of the hoop, they are so adorable.

I really enjoy doing these swaps and I can’t wait to find out the theme for the next one. I haven’t gotten my piece yet, but my swap partner is the amazing Olisa Corcoran, so I know it’s going to be incredible!
