Wool Backed Ornament

This is another no sew finish for ornament finishing....very similar to the banner finish way back in February.

1.  Measure, add 1/8 inch, cut the chipboard and fluff the board....seems to be our usual start!

2.  Mount the stitched ornament on the padded chipboard form.

3.  Center twisted cord hanger to the center top of the ornament. Secure with glue and tape to the back side.

4.  Glue or slip stitch felted wool or felt to the back of the ornament. Use pinking shears or pinking rotary cutter to trim felt 1/8 inch from sides of the ornament.  Don't you just love the pop of the non-traditional color!

5.  Repeat with second layer of woo/felt.

Another one finished.  How did it get to be September so quickly?  Will have to kick it into high gear to finish this project by November 15....that is my drop-dead deadline...ha!

Summer event....recap

Over the next few days I will post the major projects we covered in our finishing classes.  This is in case you dozed off during your sauna ...
