Jingle Sparkle Joy Ornament

Jingle Sparkle Joy (c) Midsummer Night Designs 2008
Close up of hanger attachment detail.

I made this up into an ornament last night but realised this morning that I forgot to put a hanger on it - D'oh! Anyway, during my Pilates class this morning I had a sudden flash of inspiration and when I came home I made the idea a reality :)

I'm happy with how it turned out and I hope my exchange partner is too. I don't think she reads my blog but just in case I whited out her initials :)

Oh wow I love it Mel! What a gorgeous finish!

i can't believe you actually got it all done! ususally takes me months to do the finishing after i've stitched an ornament. or i generally have to wait for a holiday so i have the time!

this looks great! can you share some of your finishing techniques?

did you hand stitch it to the felt or sew by machine? and how creative is that how you attached the hanger! what a great job!

congrats on the finish!
