Sunshine and Rainbows

It was a gloomy rainy weekend and I was feeling a bit low, so in an attempt to cheer myself up I made this ornament.

This ornament was quite simple to make. I used a compass to achieve a nice clean circle for the sun and nice clean arcs for the rainbow. Otherwise is was drawn freehand. I didn’t use batting underneath the fabric of this one, but to make the clouds truly puffy I pinned and glued some batting to the outside over the top of the white fabric. Silver cord outlines the rainbow, clouds and sun. Black sequins are pinned to the center of the sun to make a smiley face. I added a blue and white satin bow to the top as an extension of the sky.

So what do you think? Would you like to see more like this? Let me know in the comments.
