Angelic Mermaid Ornament

Hi BPM Fans!!

 It's December and Xmas is looming ever closer!!!

Hope you are enjoying our Quick Makes and Xmas ornaments so far this month!

I'm sharing a stamped fabric ornament - it's a little bit fiddly but so worth the effort when you see the end result!


Supplies:
Blank Page Muse Stamp: Kai Lana Mermaid designed by Stephanie Eaton
Scraps Calico Fabric
Brown or Black Ink Pad
Coloured Pencils
Sewing Machine
Stuffing/Hobby Fill
Sparkly flower ornament or puffy wings etc.
Fishing Line
Tools: strong clear glue, scissors, large eye needle, chopstick or poker to push stuffing in! 

Instructions:
Stamp "Kai Lana" onto the calico fabric with the brown ink pad and colour with coloured pencils. Colour to match your Xmas theme!


Layer the stamped coloured fabric piece onto another piece of scrap calico and using your sewing machine sew all around the stamped image (through both layers of fabric) as shown in the photo and trim as shown below.



Next step is to separate the two layers of fabric so you can carefully snip a slit in the back layer. Use this slit to add stuffing and use a chopstick or the like to push into the cavity.


Use your needle and fishing line to make a loop for hanging the ornament.


Use your strong glue to attach the wings. For this project I used the "petals" from some sparkly gold tree ornaments. This step covers the slit in the back of the ornament - saving you from having to sew it up!



Your angelic mermaid is now ready for hanging on your tree! 


Seasons Greetings
