Ornament #3 -- Silver Coil Icycle

>> Tuesday, October 6, 2009

Materials:


1 sheet or scrap of soft blue cardstock, atleast 8"x 1" (I don't know the weight, but heavier)


Serger


Silver or white thread (I used what was in the machine: needle 1-evergreen, needle 2- no thread, top and bottom loopers-white ; I would have used silver if I had it)


Glue Gun


Glue Stick


12" of 1/4" silver cord for hanger


8-12" of 1/4" wired silver ribbon for bow


One "doting" kitten to "help"




Thread loopers as indicated in material list.



Serge along edge of cardstock, NOT cutting off any of the edge yet.



Your cardstock should look like above.


Set blade adgustment to 1/4" . Place cardstock into serger again, aligning so that there is about 1/4 inch between the edge of the previous serger stiching and the blade. This will make the width of the coil approximatelly 1/2 inch. The width is not THAT important. However, if it is too wide it may not coil.


It should coil as it is being cut.

This is how it will look when serged.



I tried a few different methods to tighten the coil.

Manipulating each round with my fingers (not shown) ended up working the best.



Apply fray-stop.

Trim excess thread.


Tie bow and trim ends. Double over cording,


Using hot glue gun attach bow to front and cording to back.


You did it!
