Bauble Ornaments (Blog Cross-over)

IMG_8375 One of the thing I love about the techniques I shared in Fanciful Utility is that they can be used for so many projects. This time of year, FanU is great for fun, festive projects. For the next few weeks, I am going to share some of the ways FanU gets Festive.

This pair of bauble ornaments can easily be made using the Fanciful Utility techniques for making needle-books, just in a single layer.

IMG_8379These will be beautiful done up in silks as well as modern fabrics such as satins and sparkly knits. Choose solid fabrics and embellish them with scraps of trims or sequins. Chose striped fabrics to create bands around the ornament.

Hang them with a ribbon or mock up a wire.
