A fast fun idea for your tree, or perhaps for an ornament exchange with friends!
-a long narrow piece of moldable fusible
-metallic fabric such as lame (or, ooh, Cheryl Sleboda’s Power Shine)
-silver metallic thread
-optional but fun: heavyweight sparkly thread such as Superior’s Razzle Dazzle in silver or iridescent silver (wind in a bobbin SLOWLY)
-recommended if you use the heavier thread: an extra bobbin case for your machine, whose tension is permanently set a bit looser for ribbon, thick thread, or any other kind of bobbin thread
Ok, fuse your silver fabric to both sides of your moldable fusible. Let cool, then trim into a very long narrow triangle as seen above.
Begin at one of the corners and leave a long tail of threads. Zigzag stitch all sides (if using the bobbin thread, use silver metallic thread on top)…cut, again leaving a long tail. Tie these together near the end and you will have a hanging loop!
Press until very warm, then quickly wind on a slant around a dowel rod or very thick pencil, and hold until it cools (it will only take 10-15 seconds). If you are not pleased with the first shape, press flat then re-shape.
Merry merry! 🎄
