Homemade Gift Week #2 - Fabric Ornaments

My mother-in-law made these cute fabric ornaments as her homemade gift this year.  The turquoise one was made from leftover material she used to make my daughter's banquet dress last year, so that was pretty neat!  (NOTE: By the way, I have a LOT of that sequined material left....about 3 yards and it's 60 inches wide, I think.  If anyone needs it let me know. I'll give you a great deal on it!)
This is the back of my ornament to show you how she did it.  Gather the ribbon and hot glue it to a fabric covered circle.  The edges of the fabric are on the front side.  You will cover it up with the top, shown below.
The top part is another fabric covered circle.  Click HERE for a link that shows how to gather the fabric onto a circle.  It's easier than you might think, but does involve a little bit of hand sewing.

Cute, isn't it?!  Thanks, Sharon!

That will be a neat memory to have one made from the special dress material!
