cool! they're not padded or anything though?

No, not at that scale. I did do the method where I drew the design on a piece of paper, and then embroider over the paper, though. Since it won't be washed, it's not an issue. When I do a larger piece, I do either a line of close running stitch just inside the stitching line, or that plus random lines all through the middle of the blank are, to give a little bit of body under the stitches.

wow, how do you get the satin stitches to have that definition?

Not much, besides stitching very carefully. I just pay close attention to the placement of where the needle goes..even one thread over can make a huge difference in the appearance of the stitch! I'm still not an expert at it, either, but I will say, the small scale of this (about 3 inches across the whole ornament) makes every little mistake count. Tongue

Single casualty sounds good. Tongue (I was actually meaning, does the glue stick well to both the felt AND the button...I have had times when I try glue something with a plastic or metal surface, and while the glue holds to the other surface well, on the side of the plastic or metal, it just doesn't grip, and it pops off, leaving a perfect impression of the plastic or metal surface on it, lol. )

Threegirlsandaboy (again Tongue ), you SHOULD try out freezer paper! It's SOOO simple! I just ran a piece through the printer, cut out my image, ironed it onto the fabric so it stuck, and stenciled away. Easiest thing EVAH!

Thanks! Cheesy

Threegirlsandaboy..while I HIGHLY recommend Ottobre to anyone, because frankly, it just rocks, I have to say that the patterns I used barely resemble my creations at all. About all that is the same is the neckline and the sleeves. From there down, I completely changed it up. And, for the first dress, I finished the edges of the sleeves in a completely different manner than the pattern, so even that's different. But if you are handy with a pencil, the changes are all fairly simple to figure out! Cheesy

Thanks, guys! I was really pleased how well it came out, and would love one for myself, except, well, I'm too lazy to do all that work again just for me. Tongue

Wow..these are fantastic! Not only is the work really nice, but your designs are really special, too! Shocked

I've always been partial to the look of steampunk, but this is making me want to go out and actually get some of it for myself!! Wow! Shocked

What? Wiggly side goes down?? Man..this might revolutionize my hairpin wearing forever!! Tongue

Very clever with the felt! Does the plastic surface of the buttons themselves hold the glue well enough?? I always have the problems with it snapping off, even when I use a proper glue. Huh
