Basic Ornament Finishing Instructions

Just Cross Stitch magazine has published simple instructions for finishing small ornaments from their popular Christmas and Halloween ornaments issues.   If you want a flat finished ornament or one that is padded into a miniature pillow shape, this can help you do it yourself.  There is even a tutorial for making twisted cord for the edge and a loop hanger.

Finishing is not hard but it does take practice.  Why not pull out those little ornaments you've stitched but never sent to a finisher and practice doing it yourself?  It will give you a new appreciation for professional finishers and help you explain what you like and what you don't the next time you use a pro.  And you might save a little money and enjoy something that is totally made by you start to finish.
