On to our next ornament. This one is Merry. I love the little lacy edge along the bottom. If you have decided to do your ornaments in more traditional colors you might want to edge this one in lace.
First measure, add 1/8 inch on all sides, cut forms from the chipboard and attach quilt batting to one side of each board.
Center stitching on one board and backing fabric to the other. When gluing try and keep the glue about 1/4 inch from the edge as it is no fun dragging your needle thru dried glue when you sew the two sides together.
Place front to back and slip stitch around the edges. Leave 3/4 inch open at the center top.
Knot your cording to form hanging loop. Begin by placing the cord end (the one closest to the knot) into the opening. Glue or stitch cording around the ornament returning to the opening. Let glue dry, TAPE cording, and then slip cord end into the opening.
Another ornament finished and ready to hang.
Next ornament will be Wait til Dec. 25! You will need a toilet paper roll... Just like kindergarten and I promise we will have fun!
We need to get these finished up so we all can begin stitching Lizzie*Kate's new Mystery Christmas Sampler....it is going to be wonderful.
