Christmas ornament.

My good friend and I got together today to make ornaments. This is the first one that I did. We painted onto fabric, added batting and a backing fabric, and did some very simple machine quilting. I glued ot onto acetate which had been cut to the shape of the ornament. I then curled it up, and slipped it inside. Then it just sprang open. It was easier than I expected. I got the idea from the book "Tranceparency Art" by Somerset. I am so ready to make some more.
