Grandma's Cookie Jar

About this design:

I was really pleased when I got this wrapped bracelet done. It reminded me of those wonderful days as a child when I would go to Grandma's and she would make a shortbread house with lots of candies! Even the button reminded me of her waffle cones.


Russian Serpentine,latte quartz, Ruby Quartz, natural leather, C-lon gold beading thread, TierraCast hammertone button from LB.

    What a cute set of colors and design!!! This is delicious, Kat!!! I think I am going to try your stitching method once instead of the ladder and see how it works for me. I love how this looks! :)

    Thanks everyone!
    @puppychick labratbecky, yes, I prefer this stitch as the threads are all going in the same direction.

    So very festive! Love this one! How did you get all the stitches to go in the same direction?

    @Elis Mom….I don’t do the typical ladder stitch which uses a figure 8 pattern. I got this idea from who has some fabulous tutorials.
