More Ornament Finishes~

First of all, I finished my 12th ornament stitch – “Joy and Peace”!! Isn’t this design adorable?! I love the red and green!!! This concludes my monthly ornament stitching, can’t believe I actually stock to the plan!!! Now all I have to do is finished them up!!

So here are three more of my ornament finishes~~ These are pretty easy to make, and required very little stitching!! Believe it or not, the most difficult part for me was the bow!!! I can never make a perfect bow!!!! Once again, it was Vonna to the rescue. I used her bow tutorial and mine turned out better then before but still not as perfect…. Any tips on making perfect bows?

  4. They are stunning Theresa :)
    Bow making is an at form and I don't do a good job on them myself. BUT if you google "bow making" you can find out lots of good advice and tips. One thing I can tell you, that I have learned is use wider ribbon like 1/2 inch and up (depending on size of project). also wire edged ribbon is FABULOUS for finishing :)

  9. FANTASTIC!!!!!

    I'm almost ashamed to admit I never got beyond the 'rabbit ear' type of way of making a bow. The other way, looping it around, pulling something through that thing, blah blah blah, just never learned it. /shrug
