I just received your ornaments you sent me yesterday..Just wanted to say I love them and Thanks!
Aren't they just the cutest!!! The chick can also be a pin cushion!!
The Santa's, were a kit I purchased at a Bismarck ND Quilt shop for $15.00. They came in a Espresso cup.
http://store.happyhollowdesigns.com/ - They have christmas and halloween kits. Loads of cute stuff. I purchased the light bulbs, bells and nose buttons at Hobby Lobby. I tole paint, so I did the noses in Gooseberry pink with a stippling brush. The little black buttons I have purchased at both Walmart, Hobby Lobby and JoAnn's. The fuse grid facing you can find in any quilt/craft shop.
If any of you are out and about, I am looking for the 4" paperclip for the ice skates that is one of their kits. Will pay shipping and cost plus a gift. I've done indepth research online (office depot, office max and staples). Did a question Online and need to check Dollar Stores, we only have one small one here in Dickinson, ND. I was in Bismarck this past Saturday and checked Hobby Lobby, Hancocks and JoAnns and two of the office supplies listed above. The two office supplies had gold and vinyl covered, no silver. My next step is to purchase a "gauged" wire and make my own.
The folded ornament came from http://katrinastutorials.blogspot.com posted /September 22, 2009. She had 2 that I printed off. The other has a triangle shape.
Robinlee, thanks for the tutorial, I love those! I was thinking you could make them any size as long as you followed the instructions! I am going to put a tree in my sewing room I don't know where, lol! But a cute little one would be fun!
I sent thank you's to the wrong person! Twice... So please if you sent me the lovely Ornaments can you let me know what your board name is! I have tried a few combinations of QuilterMary Quilter Mary and well I can't find you!
OK Duh, foggy brain just came up with a plan, ask Brenda!
Please PM the sender when you receive their ornament!
Thank you Brenda! and thank you Quilting Mary! I just love my new ornaments! I would love to learn how you made that Christmas Ball, it is really nice!
My mom used to make the Christmas balls and she also did eggs at Easter...this is the way that she did them...you get a styrofoam ball and you cute squares, rectangles, etc. in small pieces of fabric...you just lay it on the ball and gently push the fabric in to the foam...my mom would use a small screwdriver or a nail file to push the fabric in...you just have to be careful not too push in too far or the styrofoam will fall apart. Sometimes she would cover the seams with rick rack (attach with glue gun), other times she would leave seams as they are...she would use a straight pin to attach a piece of rick rack at the top to form a ribbon to hang on the tree....hope that helps.
Thanks Sherrie for the ornaments, etc. Will post picture soon.
