Melanie, on the Hand embroidered ornament- do you cut circles before you embroider or do you embroider the whole piece then cut circles? How big are circles? I have material and thread- just do not want to start cutting up fabric till I know what to do. Please help! This may be a stupid question- but I have watched video several times and do not see this information. Your tutorial on crochet a blanket was the best I have ever seen- really taught me how to crochet- thank you so much- I follow your videos! They are great and informative! Thanks in advance! Take care, Cheryl Lynne Lovell P. S. I really want to get started on these cute ornaments for some gifts for Christmas! Thanks!!!
