Ready to start making beautiful ornaments...
but feeling a little overwhelmed about starting?
Ever see those No-Sew Ornament tutorials out there on YouTube and Pinterest... with no structure to follow, and wonky lines & pins showing all over the place?
They are everywhere… and yet those problems are so easily avoided!
The truth is, my very first ornaments looked like a 3rd grader made them.
To be fair, this was about 25 years ago, and I actually was only a few years older than a 3rd grader.
My mom had just been to a demonstration at the Ben Franklin craft store (remember those?), where she'd learned to make 'ribbon balls', and she came home with bags of supplies.
She, my sister, and I sat around for hours, having a grand ol' time... but our first ornaments were... well, a little old-fashioned and hokey looking. Picture lacey aprons and yodeling. (I'm just kidding.. we didn't wear lacey aprons.)
Our stars were not star-shaped.
Points were not pointy.
Foam was mysteriously showing through from under the fabric.
And there were these little specks of silver that were shimmering all over. Glitter? No, no... not glitter. Pinheads.
And yikes, look at those bows.
The thing with making these?... the struggle is REAL.
No-Sew Ornaments are made with dozens of tiny pieces of fabric, each of which are folded and pinned to a foam ball.
That's a lot of little pieces, and it can feel overwhelming to even START one... let alone start with no plan.
And yet, that's pretty much what you'll get from all the YouTube videos out there... no real method. Just some will-nilly pinning, and a hope that it will all come together halfway decent in the end.
And that's a lot of potential time, trouble, and cost to spend, only to end up with something you aren't very happy with.
Honestly, it's no wonder most people never even get through their first try at one before tossing it in the trash.
I can't even count the number of times someone has commented on one of my ornament photos, saying...
"That looks amazing, but there is no way I could ever make that."
"I've tried making those before, and it was way too complicated."
But what if, with just a few simple tweaks, you could make an ornament that truly looks like a work of art?
With lines so perfect & beautiful that people are left wondering how in the world you did it? (and thinking you must have sewn it!)
There are 3 simple things that will make your ornaments look Perfectly Pinned:
- Straight lines and symmetry
- No pins or foam showing
- The first side matches the second side
These 3 things are SO easy to do, and yet not one single YouTube video puts any focus on them at all.
Perfectly Pinned is DIFFERENT.
I mentioned above that I made my first ornament when I was young (about 15) and it wasn't exactly a work of art.
But making ornaments was the one hobby I stuck with throughout my entire life.
Even after I got married, I continued making them... but my hubby was a Private in the Marines (and I was a young mom), so we did not have lots of extra money for crafts.
And so, I kept up my hobby by figuring out ways to do things a little differently, to save money, and make my precious supply money stretch.
But all these little changes didn't just save me in supplies.. they made my ornaments look so much better!
For example, I started using smaller rectangles instead of larger squares (the way that most people teach) so that I wouldn't be doubling up my fabric (waste!) - and my ornaments looked so much less bulky and hokey.
Years later, I began selling them for a little extra Christmas money. It grew to a point where they were selling faster than I could make them, and both my husband and I were amazed.
But something else happened.
People started asking me HOW I was making them look so perfect. By this point, there were tutorials and videos popping up online. I directed people to those.
But over and over, people would send me emails saying they had tried making an ornament, but no matter what they did, no matter what tutorial they'd watched, they just couldn't get their ornaments to look like MINE.
They wanted my secret!
I started teaching online, and have now taught tens of thousands of ornamenters all around the world, and have had my work featured in multiple magazines and shows. I also create make-it-yourself kits, patterns, and custom ornament supplies for my thousands of monthly Ornament Girls Club members.
Perfectly Pinned is the collection of ornament-making info that I've been compiling since I began teaching on my website over a decade ago.
With Perfectly Pinned, you will...
Create a stunning work of art that will leave everyone wondering how in the world you made it.
