    It was so nice of you to take the time to post the directions and pic of these beautiful ornaments. I've seen these before but didn't know how to do it. Thanks so much for your tut.

    I have done mine the same way you mentioned without the marker.Before I started adding the fabric, I ran a piece of narrow ribbon thru the center with a metal crotchet hook and pulled it thru tying it with a knot leaving about two inches hanging on the bottom for looks. Also, I left at least that much of the folded ribbon on the top to hang onto the tree. I then added Christmas pics pieces around the top with glue. This turned out very nice.

    That is a stunning ornament! What fun to make as well; I think I could probably get my grand daughter interested in making some of these. Thanks for sharing!

    I'm SO glad you posted this tutorial! I've been wanting to learn how to make them, and my LQS has a class on them...next weekend, when I will be three states away, having Christmas dinner with the inlaws. Now I know what I'll do in the car on the way there!

    Many years ago did very similar ornament using ribbon instead of fabric square for a make-it-take-it class at the Piece Goods Shop in Oak Ridge Tenn. Ribbon worked better in class situation due to lack of time.
    Thankful to still be here.Someone upstairs must still have a plan for me.

    I would really like to make these, but I have 3 small children & am concerned about leaving the pins in!!

    Any idea about that?
