Ornament Tutorial (Sort Of)

Let's just say I have a new respect for tutorial writers everywhere!  Thank you all so much for sharing your instructions and taking the time to explain things so beautifully!

I'm going to have to make my first tutorial be on something simpler than these ornaments.   These steps were easy to learn when sitting by my mom and following along, but when it came to writing them all down I was a little overwhelmed.  Not to worry, however, because there are some great tutorials already out there written by people who can explain this a lot better than I can!  Here are three of the best ones I've found:

The only difference in my ornaments and the ones shown in these tutorials is that most of these start on each end of the styrofoam ball, work toward the middle, then put ribbon around the center seam.  I like to work from the bottom all the way to the top so that more of the fabric is highlighted.

I hope you are having a great week!
