Paper Pieced Ornaments

First things first...if you have not paper pieced before there are good instructions here:

The pattern i used was found here:

You can use any 3 or 4 inch paper or regular pieced pattern that you like. I know there are bunches on the web if you dig a little.

For one ornament you will need: one block, one 4 inch square of Christmas fabric, a 4x8 piece of heavy fusible interfacing, a ribbon for hanging, pinking shears if you have them and of course your basic sewing stuff.

Fuse the interfacing to the back of the block and the Christmas fabric. Sew the 2 pieces WRONG sides together. Pink the edges(optional step). Attach your ribbon hanger with hot glue, hand or machine stitching. Date it and hang it on the tree!

Becky, your ornament looks so cute. I printed off a few pp patterns and hope I get to make some, too. Thanks for the link.
