Hurry, only 364 days until Christmas!!!

The last ornament....

This technique can be used for ornaments and pillows.  

Interface the back of the stitching. I like the pre packaged interfacing at Hancock's Fabrics.  It is good for stitching projects.




Trim stitching leaving 1/2 inch on all four sides.  Cut 2 inch strip of check fabric for bottom and piece for backing--interface all.



Sew two inch strip to bottom of stitching.  Use 1/4 inch seam allowance.  Sew on rick rack trim.  HINT...glue trim in place before sewing!  




Sew front to backing    Leave opening for turning right side out...clip corners then turn.



Stuff and add the buttons.




Add bow on top and we have officially finished twelve cute ornaments!



I have so enjoyed working through these ornaments with you.  Stay tuned more finishing tutorials.
