I have to say I'm so pleased with how this turned out. I used chipboard pieces for the finishing form and it worked perfectly. It's really sturdy and thin too. I went to my local scrapbook store, bought the chipboard and used their dies to cut out the ovals. (The chipboard, which is like a thin, sturdy cardboard, came in 8x10 sheets and cost just over a dollar per sheet.)
I whip stitched all around the design to get it nice and tight on the form, did the same to another oval with coordinating fabric, glued them together and finished it with silver rick rack. Does anyone know if this method would work for square ornaments too? I have a hard time getting them tight on the form with nice, square corners.
