Finish Ornaments

1. Center and straight-stitch each appliquéd black B circle to a red-and-black mini-check A circle.

2. With wrong sides together, layer each stitched red-and-black mini-check circle with an unstitched red-and-black mini-check circle.

3. Using gold perle cotton, start at the top of each pair of circles and blanket-stitch around the edges, leaving a 4" tail at the beginning. At the end, run your thread under the first stitches, tie a knot with the beginning thread, and leave a 4" tail. Cut the tails to the same length, and knot together to form a hanging loop and complete the ornament.
