This is the gorgeous BBD stocking I received from a friend in Germany. Her work is perfect and it's hanging above my computer right now because it's too pretty to save until December.
We included a fat quarter of Christmas themed fabric and a holiday recipe. Here is my complete package.
I sent to a friend in Virginia. It took me a ridiculous amount of time to do the finish finishing and much chaos ensued. The finishing called for sticky mounting board but I didn't have any. I tried using foam core board wrapped in batting but was not happy with how it looked.
When did this happen?? Are we getting "lite" craft stores these days that don't stock useful products? Granted I haven't wanted that kind of product in years but I'm sure my finished ornament would have looked much lovelier had I had it to use.
So back I went home and used my original method. I still wasn't pleased with the finish but I forged on. The one thing that did go right this time was making the twisted cord with my cording drill. Perhaps it worked because I used actual directions from the JCS ornie issue??
Here is my work space after finally finishing the finishing.
