We were supposed to bring our own fabric for this craft, but in my rush to get out the door on time with my show and tell, gift for the gift exchange, food for the pot luck and tea, I completely forgot to bring the fabric. Ugh! Lucky for me, Mary brought along a few extra kits to make this ornament and generously gave one to me. Thanks, Mary--you saved the day for me!
Each ornament requires 40 2.5" squares and over 100 pins. Mary supplied the pins and styrofoam balls to each person making this craft.
Above, you can see my ornament after two colours have been added. The same pattern is on the other side of the ball as well.
Here is my finished folded fabric star Christmas ball. In the picture below, you can see the trim piece that hides the edges of the folded fabric as well as the silver ribbon that I used to create a loop to hang the ornament on the tree.
Our tree is up and the light are on, but the decorations still need to be added. Our nieces have been helping us decorate our tree for the last few years but this year they are away at university so my husband and I will be doing this ourselves this afternoon. I am still working on my new Christmas tree skirt--I just have one more section to piece and then do the quilting and binding. I am still hopeful that I will have it done by the time my daughter is home for the holidays.
I purchased this kit at Fabrications in Ottawa last weekend and will work on it after the tree is decorated today.
