Stars and Stripes Lantern

Light up your 4th of July celebrations with this festive stars and stripes tea light lantern!  Very easy to make in a single hooping with only 4 color stops, 3 colors of thread, and about 8,200 stitches.  The lantern is made from organza and glitter tulle, stitched onto water-soluble stabilizer and assembled with a small line of glue and four brads.  It fits one LED batttery-powered tealight inside for a fabulous glow in the evening.

They would look great strung up like a banner between the posts of a porch, or hung from trees in the yard, or several of them hanging in a window, hanging from the awning of a camper/trailer/RV, or hanging from a patio umbrella... 

Please note these are machine embroidery in the hoop (ITH) designs, not sewing patterns, and they can only be used with an embroidery machine.
