March 5, 2021--Finally finished this project into a stocking ornament. This is the second stocking made using a technique I wrote about here. It's definitely a learning process and some of what I learned can be transferred to flat ornaments. For example, finger pressing the canvas seam allowance into place, then ironing it flat so it can be used as a mounting board template is a great technique for odd shaped ornaments. I'm still on the fence about hand sewing together the canvas front to the fabric back, but I'll give it a try with flat backed ornaments rather than gluing them together as I would normally do (hand sewing is a necessity for working up stockings though).
