I'm bummed. I finished stitching the Snow Blessing Ornie. I didn't do a good job sewing around the curve with my machine, as it's not even on both sides. I pushed my plastic turning tool right through the linen on one corner--UGH! I kept shoving batting inside the little thing, and after I was done, it seemed lumpy.
I think this was the last pillow ornie I will do, unless someone can point me in the direction of a fabulous tutorial of how to stitch it together (with sewing machine or by hand or what??), how to stuff the dang thing right, and how to sew it closed without it looking all caddywhompus. Yep, that's a word. How do they get 'em so fully stuffed and pretty looking??
I'd also like to add some pretty beads to the edges of an ornie, ala Carol-her stuff is FABU, but can't figure out how to do that either, lol! I have looked all day for some really good step by step finishing tuts, but I didn't find answers to my burning questions. Working on that tiny little thing just took it out of me. It's not even fit to post!
That's why I frame stuff. :P
