I saw a paper version of this ornament a while ago, but only just got around to trying to make a fabric version.



It took me a few goes to arrange my circles of fabric so that they nestled nicely together once I started sewing on the beads.  It's not completely perfect, but I was pleased that I got it to work in the end - and it was a really good excuse to test out the couching foot for my sewing machine.  Smiley  I'm going to try a simpler approach for the next one, though.

very nice!
my aunt taught me to make them out of old christmas cards; I know what a lot of work that is!

Thanks!  Sewing all the beads on was definitely the biggest time sink.  Fun, though.  Smiley
