  1. These tutorials are just wonderful - they make things clear that puzzle me on other tutorials. I must get brave enough to do some of these finishes!

    1. The link should take you to the page where I talk about assembling the 3 sided three wise men ornament but there is no pattern on that page. I adapted a pattern that is in the book "Sue Cook's Christmas Cross Stitch Collection" to make these ornaments

    1. Hello. I drew my pattern using an ornament that I was given as a gift. It has recently been pointed out to me that the ornament that was given to me was probably made from a pattern that was in the book "Christmas Quilts and Crafts" by Eleanor Burns (c. 1995). There was some debate as to whether or not my pattern violated copyright (because I didn't use images or words from the book, because one can't copyright a method of construction and because I used a different method of construction) but because I was told that the finished project significantly resembled the finished product in the book, and therefore could be deemed a derivative product, I decided to remove my paper piece Santa pattern from my blog.

      If you can find a copy of the book you should be able to easily draw a paper pieced version of the pattern.
