5. Pin each small tie up one side and down the other so you can sew the entire sunburst together continuously.
|Make sure you have enough pins! I had one container and once again had just enough. Only 1 pin left!!|
6. Start at the top tip of a skinny tie (don’t forget to back stitch a few stitches in to secure the thread) and sew along the edge of the skinny tie. I had my needle set to the left side and lined the edge of the tie up along the middle of the presser foot.
7. When you reach a turn leave the needle in the fabric, lift the presser foot, turn the fabric so it’s lined up in the direction you need to sew, lower the presser foot, and resume sewing.
8. Stitch down until you get to where the 2 skinny ties meet. Leave the needle in the fabric, raise presser foot, turn the fabric so you are sewing up the next tie, lower you presser foot, and resume sewing. Continue up and down each tie until you make it back to the start. SEWING DONE!!
9. Place a clock kit base under a thin wood clock face (Clock Kit: Joanns $7.99, Wood Clock Faces: AC Moore $1.19)
11. Sandwich the dowels between the bottom clock face and a 2nd finished clock face. When you tighten down the clock parts the dowels will be secured.
12. Use industrial strength craft glue to glue on a saw tooth picture hanger.

13. Push the ties out of the way and trim the excess on each dowel.
