  3. When cutting the batting pieces cut out on the line.

  4. When cutting the fabric pieces cut at least 1 inch away from marked line.

  5. Yes! I know my cutting isn’t perfect…..just remember…..this isn’t brain surgery. Save all that energy for the embellishing of your Clam Shell.

  6. Time now to “sandwich” your fabric, batting and template….and….YES!!! ….The template STAYS INSIDE the petal.
     
  7. Okay….I’m not the best photographer!  The wonder clips were invaluable with this part of the process.  If you haven’t tried them….you MUST!!

  8. You can see the crisscrossed stitches….just one side to the other until the fabric-batting sandwich is snug around the template.

  9. This is where you need to refer to your instruction sheet…the placement of the inner petals to the outer petals is important to the finished look.  There are now two sides and a bottom piece and the inner to outer placement is important.
     
  10. Now the fun begins and you will start to stitch your three petals together….please check your instructions for stitching tips and other helpful hints.

Very cute ornaments!

Neat project.

This looks like it'd be a pretty quick and easy way to use up some scrap fabric too. Very neat idea.

I would never have thought to use these for ornaments - very clever. Thanks for the idea and tutorial!

Sounds interesting ... I can't quite picture how these go together, so I will just have to pick up a kit and try it!

The picture at the top does not seem to match the project, but the project looks fun!

These look fairly simple to make and so cute! Would make nice stocking stuffers too. Could be personalized easily.
