Baubling along

Plum posted a really good tutorial about using decorative stitches on the sewing machine to make quick felt Christmas baubles.  As I had some red felt circles n my stash of stuff, I adapted that tutorial to go into production.


 White stitching on red


Red wool thread on top of foiled circles, and also used on the back, in the bobbin.  Sewed beautifully, but there was surprisingly little length of thread on the bobbin, requiring lots of bobbin rewinding.

  1. Interesting - I think Plum did stitching first then cut circles and you've gone the other way! Whichever order they make great baubles!!!!!


Thanks for your comment. I love to read them, but can't always respond.
