I pinned a smaller one onto some fabric and cut that out
You can never go wrong with rick rack....I like to use Jumbo with pillowcases
First I pinned on the rick rack
Then I sewed it on
using just a straight stitch
Next I positioned on the tree where I wanted it
Then I use the iron to iron on
Use wonderunder to help it stay in place and iron on ...it makes it a lot easier...trust me!
For some reason I decied to pin on the second layer and sewed that on
Ta da here is the FINAL piece!
Doesn't that look so much better?????
Here is the up close and personal
For the second pillowcase I added some fabric instead of rick rack
so I first started by tearing off the top
Next I cut some black fabric 2 1/2 inches by width of pillowcase and ironed in half. Then I inserted it between the top and bottom of pillowcase. Then sew all three together and flip inside out.
I added the snowman on like I did with the tree
Then I used some left over rick rack for the scarf and sticthed into place. For the eyes and the buttons I used embroidery floss and did several french knots.
Hope you enjoy!!!
