I've been thinking about a new ornament design, and this afternoon it was a bit too warm to work in the garden, so I thought it would be a perfect time to try it out.
First, I dug out 5 blue Christmas fabrics, ironed them just enough to get by,
My original idea was to attach the strip to white felt by using fusible webbing, but either I don't have any left or I can't find it--either is quite possible. So I resorted to quilt basting spray and a few pins to keep the fabric in place,
Then I picked out rayon embroidery thread for decorative stitching,
Next, it was time to make ornaments! At first my idea had been to trace the ornament patterns onto the fabric, stitch them, then cut them out with pinking shears,
Next I got the idea to trace the design on the WRONG side:
Kind of a fun project for a warm afternoon..............
