First, I cut out the patterns for the dancers at the size I wanted. I didn't want them too big. I drew the parts I wanted with purple embroidery transfer pencil.
I then ironed them to fabric to leave the pattern. Time to start stitching!
But of course I hooped them before I started to stitch. BTW I had a lot of floss from Sonja's Grandmother so every one was stitched with love :)
Here is all of the finished people. :) they don't have bling yet. I have to bling them!
Enter Lauren's bling stash
This is Sonja, yes those gold beads are like zils.
This is Victoria. I tried my hardest to find thread that matched her red hair!
This is Jenna.
Ok now I am ready to turn them into ornaments. I needed to kind of give them some sort of shape. I used my hoop as a start. Then I trimmed down.
Like so. Now time to back with white fabric
Here is all of them on the backing fabric.
Pin and sew down.
Trim excess fabric and clip all the curves
Ok ready to stuff!
Not going to lie but I loved how they turned out! I am positively giddy. Now I should probably make some for myself..... LOL!
