This year I decided to use up some scraps and make ornaments for friends and family.
I started with my pile of scraps from my fused pieces and attached them to a piece of muslin.
Then I put some angelina fibers over it to add sparkle.
I free motion quilted the whole piece then cut out shapes.
Satin stitched the edges to finish them off.
The satin stitching on the shaped pieces was a bit challenging, so I moved on to circles.
I added InnerFuse to the layers for some stiffness and individualized some when possible.
They looked lovely on the Christmas trees that I had the pleasure of seeing in person.
