Rosemary,
Very pretty!! :) Need a new project? make a big one and trick it out with flashing Christmas lights! ;) LOL

Reminds me of ones my mom use to make.
With Christmas cards a hole punch and yarn.
No where near as fancy but a nice memory!
Now that sounds like a fun idea - I am currently trying to resist trying another one, only smaller! :shock: one of my best sewing friends is into the insanity of miniatures, and I am trying to decide whether to join her or not :)

Oh, that way madness lies,let you shun that! :shock: Love the decoration. You could always glue the beads on. Maybe you left your taylors thimble with your marbles :?: :lol:

Jacky, it is all your fault - that and the empty jaffa cake box! ( :lol: )

The triangles are 1" side length (x 60)
I used taffeta (same as Lorchan was asking about previously) NOT a good idea! I ended up sticking the fabric on the cards using copydex before sewing.
Spiritsfold was right in her assesment, sew them together in pairs rights sides together first, then start combining them into pyramids.
The last 4 1/2 sides were the worst to stitch, I ended up needing to use some pliers to help pull the needle through as I couldn't get a decent grip.
All I need now is some really short pins to put the beads on with (I am so not going to stitch them on :evil: )

Apart from all that it was quite fun and I could work on it in the lounge rather than just in the sewing room - now I just need to try and find where I put my tailors thimble down :roll:

I think this may be what you are looking for from the book by Hilary More "Pretty things Easy to Make " isbn 1-85470-009-x
I made them as christmas ornaments years ago,

Rosemary the thimble ring is wonderful! The pincushion looks a little intimidating but I think it would make a wonderful Christmas tree ornament.

Yes, I think so Lynn - I had figured out that pairs would work better and have made a few. I think I understand what you mean! I'll be having a go later on! Thanks a lot J x :)
