More Christmas Ornies

Here are my beginnings :) The shapes are marked out on the naked blocks. Now to embroider and embellish and then to make up into the ornaments.

Jacqui, I would never of thought to piece a block , then cut out the shape!!! duh.
Do you pad them out a little, or just leave them flat?
My plans are pretty much as descibed by Maureen above - ie to pad lightly - if I had some of the wonderous Timtex I would use that but I may just go with a wadding or sew them and then lightly stuff with toy stuffing - I think I may have made them too small tho' so I need to go back to the swap rules and check that out :)
Jo the first year I made Ornies for a swap on SCCs I lightly stuffed them,but it does add to postage and worry of breakage so the last couple of years I've made them flat and at ronnie's & ted's suggestion used Timtex instead of pellon plus card.And as I learned with the bells,with Timtex they're
washable,which would not have been option if I'd used cardboard for stiffening.
