Tips and Techniques Tuesday: Christmas Ornament

Hi everyone, Sonia from SKdesigns here today to show you step by step how to make a Chrismas ornament using your old jeans and the difference it makes when you use STICKLES to embellish it.  It was something that came to my mind in a minute and I also did it very quickly... It is super easy... hope you like it!

Start by cutting the Jean (double sided) and "pin"
the shape you want.

Stitch around in zig zag, leaving one side open

See the side open?  

Take the pattern off and cut with scissors all around
it, leaving a bit of edge (for looks)

Use some kind of stuffing to fill it in and make it puffy

Close the open end 

Sew a piece of ribbon in a loop to be able to hang it

Add embellishments and voila!... 
a quick and easy, funky country looking 
ornament made with Jeans !!!
For this particular ornament, I used Platinum Stickles

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
