Not long after I began selling my "quilted" ornaments (in quotes, because they aren't really quilted....they are NO SEW), I started having a hard time keeping up with the demand.... and then people started asking me to teach them how I made them. I hesitated to create a tutorial because the old-fashioned technique has been around for so long, but....
I make mine a little differently (after more than 20 years of experience), and everyone wanted to know exactly what I was doing to get such crisp, perfect lines.
For years, I've sold these instructions as an eBook (it's still for sale, right HERE).
But now, I've got a 3-part Video Workshop. And it's FREE!
You can watch it on YouTube right below. BUT... if you'd like to also receive a Printable Shopping List and Online Supply Buying Guide (with links to all my favorite places to buy supplies!), CLICK HERE. I'll send it all right to your email!
You can make these out of almost any kind of material you can dream up (fabric, ribbon, keepsake baby clothes, even paper), and for virtually any holiday or special occasion. They also make perfect gifts for not just Christmas, but for things like wedding and baby showers (personalize them with matching colors and materials), birthdays, and even sports teams. The possibilities are literally endless. (Here's a gallery of ideas.)
If you decide you would like to try making one of these ornaments yourself, and have any questions at all about the process, or anything else related to quilted ornaments, please feel free to leave your question in the comment section right below this post..... or you can email me from THIS PAGE. I will be glad to answer all questions as best I can!
In case you are wondering...
Q: These look complicated! Will I actually be able to make one?
A: Not just one; you'll make lots! Honestly, they look wayyy more complicated than they actually are. The video workshop above will take you through every single step, from start to finish. If you can fold a piece of fabric, you can make these... I promise.
Q: Can I use your instructions to make these to sell?
A: Of course! (And they make awesome gifts, too!) The only thing that you absolutely cannot do is share, copy, or reproduce my instructions, in whole or in part, in any way. (It's against the law, of course.)
Do you have any other questions? I have a list of Frequently Asked Questions right HERE, and if you're still wondering about something, you can let me know below in the comments, or feel free to contact me...I'll be glad to help if I can.
