"No Sew" Christmas Ornament Tutorial

... seeing all the Christmas Decorations starting to appear in the stores earlier this week, I decided today to make some new fabric ornaments for the tree! ...
(I know ... I know ... where has the year gone?)

So using fabric swatches of my design "Linen Look Stars" in Cinnamon and Mint (as above) I made these - So Simple! - So easy! - No Sew Ornaments :)
Below is a little Tutorial, incase your wanting to make some too :)

"No Sew" Christmas Ornament Tutorial

1 x 65mm Polystyrene Ball (per ornament)
1 x 8" square of fabric (per ornament)

- Tear 8 even strips of fabric
- Place 2 strips of fabric together at right angles
- Continue to add strips of fabric (as shown)
- Place Polystyrene Ball in the center of the fabric strips
- Wrap the fabric strips around the polystyrene ball
- Fasten fabric in place, with a pin (and add a loop of twine under pin if hanging ornament)
- Enjoy :)

How was everyones Halloween?
.... lots of scary fun, lollies and candies I hope! 

I was very excited to get some yummy candy myself this Halloween, when my latest
Spoonflower order arrived, full of freshly printed crisp cotton fabrics :)
The following designs are all from my new collection "French Linen - Antique White" ~ I do hope you like them :)

Finally, speaking of all things French did you see the Melbourne Cup yesterday? (otherwise known as the race that stops a Nation)
What a race by the French horse Dunaden!
What a result - Dunaden by a nose hair
~ Hope you backed the winner :)
