The inlaw ornaments are done! And to my satisfaction. I finally learned how to blind stitch like I had eyesight and how to attach trim so you couldn't see it! I probably started with the wrong ornament (the tree on the right). The store-bought trim (nearly an exact match to the trim in the magazine) had a preattached tassle. Made it hard to get it lined up properly. Finishing these ornaments took way longer than I thought it would but in the end, I come away with new skillz.
Now I have the ability to finish a huge bag of ornaments that are sewn and stuffed but need trim! If I could find time to attach that trim, my tree would really be something this year...
