FOTF felt & floss color guide for
Piper Piping (Sapphire colorway)

Here are the colors to use for Piper Piping (#10 in the series*) if you are making my Twelve Days ornaments with Felt On The Fly's beautiful Sapphire felt bundle. Sewing pattern can be purchased here.

*You may be thinking, 'Wait, no, Piper Piping is number 11!' And you are right! It is #11 in the modern carol. But not in the original carol from 1780, which is what this series is based on. But maybe 1780 style is not your jam? No worries, see this post to easily re-number yours.

  1. Hi Larissa, It was a bit difficult to attach the "belt" with the French knots after the ornament was mostly put together. Why couldn't the belt be attached before gluing the cloak to the body?

    1. Hi Sharon, you may certainly add the belt and French knots after step 60, I just do it later so that the knots are sewn through the ornament and give added strength/security to the attachment of the coat to the ornament. :-)
