Christmas Ornaments

Well it's that time again and I am making Christmas ornaments for our church Boutique. I am having foot surgery next week and have been using mostly felt for my ornaments so I can work on them with my foot propped up. I used stiff white felt for the cut-out snowflake and it's a lot easier to cut than regular felt. I also used the stiff felt for the back of the round ornaments, with a little circle of fleece inside - this seems to give them a little puffiness and helps to keep their shape. The snowflakes are my design, but feel free to copy them if you like.... Do you recognize this house ornament? It's not my design - I saw something very similar to it on a blog or somewhere and can't find it again. I'd like to give credit where credit is due and wanted to ask the person who designed it if I can make a bunch for our Boutique, but don't know whose it is....but it's very cute!

Happy Stitching,
Lin Moon

Very cute ornaments. I don't recall ever seeing stiff felt. Cute house too. May you be blessed with quick healing for your foot.
