    Thanks for the tut. I have tried several times to make these but they never turned out right. Your pics will make it SOOOOO much easier. I have a dozen 3 1/2 balls left over from another project. Now I know what I will make for our ASG Christmas party.

    I use 3/4 inch sequin pins. Anything longer than that seems to be overkill. They are long enough to attach easily. I also make mine on a 2 1/2 inch ball. Just my preference. I also keep my pins in a magnetized dish in case it gets bumped.
    Faith :lol:

    I also make these and use a smaller pin to lessen the weight of the ornament. When I was taught this at a class, they told us to do 5 rows on each side (overkill). Once I started doing this on my own, I make mine with 4 rows on each side. I also use one less pin for each square one I'm past the 1st row (one end will always over lap another and that is where I short it a pin...I think this also lessens the weight). I sell these at a local craft fair in the fall.

    Great tute. Now I know what to do with the 2 packs of mini pins I bought for $.25 4 years ago. LOL
    I knew I would find out what they were for. Thanks

    I love yours as well. Thanks for posting pics. I love the way that you did your ribbon. I to have also thought of using less pins since they overlap. I wish that I could find christmas fabric like that in my fabric shop.

    Wonderful, I was waiting to see if you get these. Have fun with these. Your first one may be frustrating but be patient it gets a lot easier with each one that you do. Please post pics once you have completed some of them.

    They are a lot of work. My mother used to make them for all her Mom's Day Out children mothers for Christmas. Everyone wanted one of Miss Jimmie's Christmas ornaments... Thanks for bringing up the precious memory.
