    Christmas Ornament

    First, I have to apologize to the person where I found this. I looked and looked and looked but could not find the original tutorial so I decided I'd better do one while I still remembered how. This is pretty simple. Start with two circles approximately 8" in diameter and sew them right sides together, leaving about 2" open for turning. After turning right side out, press and slip stitch the opening together.

    Next, fold two sides towards center. You should have the color you want to be predominant on the inside of the fold. Tack the sides together.

    Step 3 - fold the other two sides towards the center and tack them together.

    Step 4 - Start turning out the "ears"

    Step 5 - Sew a button in the center to cover your stitches and attach a loop to the back for hanging. I cut a thin strip of felt for mine. (last photo)

    I made these last year in two sizes. The original was from a blog called Katrina's Tutorials....Just google that. She also has a simpler one that starts with a triangle...I'm planning on making it next year. Very talented designer.

    Thanks to your pictures, I think I now understand how this orny is formed. I have seen and admired, but not understood. Thank you.

    Fantastic! I'm going to make some of these to attach to gifts, instead of using bows. Thank you!

    Hi Sparky's Mom. That's a really nice ornament. My quilt guild does a Hospice tree every year for charity and we are always looking for easy and striking ornaments. This fits the bill. Does anyone know if there is someone we need to contact before using the technique? I see another message mentions Katrina's Tutorials blog. If that's the one, I'll contact her but would also like to use your tutorial as it's very clear.
