This is what our Crafternooners will be making for Christmas. The bell is using the same principle as the circle decoration, 6 bell shapes sewn together down the middle and then sewn in segments and beaded.
They will also be making Jodie Carletons' Woodland Christmas, All hand sewn, I love it! Thanks Jodie! the pattern is available here,
Having the yarn I bought the other day to turn into cord, I realised that it is too thick to use the crochet chain stitch so I decided to see if using the sewing machine would work instead. Perfect! On this demonstration I have used 2 different coloured threads so that you can see more clearly exactly what is happening, It twists.
Twist the yarn in whatever direction is most comfortable to you a little at a time and keeping it even sew.
