    Christmas craft - to pink or not to pink?

    I am making Christmas ornaments out of charms with fuisible fleece cut with the M* small wedge ruler.
    Once cut, I'm running them through with decorative stitches in Christmas colors. These are my test batch.
    I plan to use a small hole punch to add the hanging string.
    So... 1st question... do you think the stitching will unravel? Would it stop if I ran them back under the iron and re-melted the fusible?

    And... do we like the edges pinked or not? These I had to cut, decorate, then pink, so I lost some size. Maybe I should get a pinking rotary blade? Can u use those with a ruler?

    I like the edges pinked. I have a rotary cutter with a pinking blade that I use with a ruler.

      Pinked is cuter. Some small buttons would look cute too.

        Those are cute and clever. For the edges try experimenting with lightly applying CheckFrey.

          Pinked edges yes. Instead of punching a hole for the thread hangers, perhaps use star shaped sinquins

          Thread the star first and then using a small dab of glue to ateach to the top of the tree

            Thanks! I think I like the pinked edges too. I'll see if I can pick up the rotary one quickly. That'll save me time.

            I got the idea from a super old tutorial of Jenny's that was a Christmas pennant/flag garland.

            I have a handful of Christmasy charms and a bolt of fusible fleece, so I need to get to work. I think the white ones are pretty cute, not sure how it'll look on patterned fabric though. I might dig around and find some ribbon or ricrac in my stash.

            I'm gonna experiment with the hangers. I have some buttons, beads, bells and do-dads I can try out.

                  I was thinking the same thing! I think they'd be darling in random order.

                    Call me crazy, but I like some pinked and some not! Maybe because in the pic they're all together and it seems more like a dimensional forest that way, some blurred by distance or weather.

                    Love them, what a clever idea and a fun use for all those decorative stitches!
