These can also be made with wide satin ribbon - not with fabric.

Those are great! I have that pattern, but haven't tried it yet. I make the fabric pinecone ornaments with the egg styrafoam in the center.

Made a box of bows (see below) which I'll attach with an ornament hanger in Nov. using a glue gun. Also made 6 Spring/Easter ones and three sets of hanging Valentine ones.

If interested, directions can be found at

Bought the 3" styro balls at Michael's with coupons and the MANY pins needed at Michael's or JoAnns with 40% off coupons or notions' sales. Be sure to use a thimble.
you have been a busy gal!

I love these ornaments. Years ago I had a tree with alot of them on it. Some how in storage they got damp and mildewed. It was so sad. I bought the supplies to make more but never have. I think it's all in a box in my closet. I might have to drag it out for next Christmas.
