Quilted Christmas Ornament

Even though I have a million and one things to do before the 25th, I just had to give the quilted Christmas ornament video tutorial that I posted last week a try. It went together quickly once I got the hang of the folding and pinning. Do wear a thimble to help push the straight pins through the fabric into the styrofoam though or you will have some sore fingers when you are done!

Oh wow this is so lovely. It reminds me of an old fashioned ornament.

Beautiful! I can imagine how sore the fingers would be. Ouch!

O.K. Now I have to make a trip to the craft store! That is so neat! Your ornament is so pretty! I watched the video, and hope it's as easy as it looks!

Your very own Christmas Star Susan - totally gorgeous! I'm sorry I can't spare the time to make one of my own- a Union Jack glass is calling to be made.

Your ornament is lovely. My daughter made me one of these several years ago. I always have a special place for it on our tree.

Very cute! I ordered some 3 inch Styrofoam balls along with another order I placed - maybe they'll be here before Christmas. Walmart only had 2 1/2 and 4 inch.
Yours is very cute!

I just got back from Hobby Lobby, a local craft shop. All I needed were the styrofoam balls. My fabrics are cut and ready to go. Thanks for posting the tutorial.

How clever I can't wait to start. the clip was very easy to understand, however my sound card has gone and I don't know what size to cut the fabric. Please help and let me know.
Many thanks
