Ornaments of Christmas past

Monday, December 22, 2008

These are my handmade felt ornaments from past Christmases. I had been looking for an easy ornament that I could make myself, and these are what I ended up with. I have done other designs, but most of them were given away as gifts. They are very easy to make and mostly just require finding a good pattern. From there, it is just cutting out the felt peices, stuffing them, and sewing them together. Easy!

Last year, I gave all of my husband's side of the family one of Santa's reindeer. I did it by age, so my my husband and I are Comet & Cupid.

This reindeer is my favorite!

My husband even got into the fun! He gave me this one for me for Christmas. He made it by tracing a Ford mustang emblem. He's so sweet!

My first real post!

Hey guys!
I've been following SewMamaSew for a little while now and have loved finding awesome projects to do. It's actually the reason I started this blog, so I can show off all my craftiness.

A recent project I've done are these cute accent pillows made from placemats. I got this awesome tutorial from Schlosser Designs: Quick and Easy Accent Pillows
They are so easy to make. They only cost a total of $25 for 5 pillows and took about an hour to make. It should have taken only 30 minutes, but my seam ripper and I do NOT get along!
