    This looks really awesome but I can't find the sizes for the squares anywhere. The only one I know is the 10 X 10 mentioned right at the start of the tutorial. Does anybody have the sizes for the other 2 squares?

    Questions- What is sizing? Could you explain? Why do you size? What do you use to size? i.e. product? On the 10×10 you folded wrong sides but you said fold right sides. Which one is it? Why didn’t you show the sewing in the center after folding in all the triangles? I didn’t understand what you were talking about when you said sew 1/4 inch off center. The camera should be above you and a bit to the side so we can see what you are sewing. I don’t understand what you are talking about when you were saying your zipper foot works like a β€œplow”?

    Really pretty ornaments. I think I'd use a lightweight batting instead of poly-fill. Can sew it on at the same time as the backing fabric. Thanks for the great tutorial.

    I love this, thank you! I'm making it for an ornament exchange this week! Yay! I do have a question though, for the final step, the button, how do you get it to look indented? Mine just sitcks on and it looks more bulged outward. Do I sew it through to the rear of the ornament and just have a small amount of thread showing on the back? Or do I push the needle out towards the side of the ornament so it doesn't show? I'm thinking the side will make it wonky. Thanks!

    Wow! I'm not new to sewing but very new to craft sewing. You made these so easy. Using the zipper foot just made the curves almost fold themselves into that perfect curve. Thank you.

    Thanks for sharing so many neat sewing projects and technique. Very helpful and inspiring. I just wish you would zoom in on the finished product so we can see it. More close-ups throughout the videos would be helpful, too. πŸ˜‰

    At the end, you said push the button in the center down to give it that indented look. Would it be O.K. to stitch by hand through the center a couple times and secure with a knot on opposite side of where button would be glued on to (front side for botton)? Or would you not suggest this? Love these ornaments BTW!

    Hey…. one trick I've learned for myself. For the edge of fabric used for the opening to turn…
    Both top and bottom fabrics…
    I do a long stitch at the same seam allowance… then I sandwich and enclose and then turn right sides out. This gives me a nice easiest line to bring my seam together to sew closed. The long stitch thread can easily be removed.

    I especially use this trick when I do the self binding baby blankets to make sure the closure lines up. I like exactness.
