christmas ornaments

December 9th, 2010 at 17:01


- spoiler alert for some of my blms friends and fellow swappers-

I’ve signed up for a Christmas ornament swap. I had intended to make little ornaments from clay, the little things with the footprint on them (in my previous post) were to be hung by a colourful ribbon for tree decoration. But that didn’t work out too well so I decided to make some ornaments from felt. I used some red and green felt I had left from previous Christmas decoration making. I doubled up the fabric and stuck it together with glue, then cut out various shapes and embroidered them with the baby’s names using coloured thread and then sewed them together. I had a lot of fun making them, each piece is similar in theme but they are all different.

Here a few photos:

These were really difficult to photograph! I tried on the table top, in the snow and ended up putting them into the unfired clay bowl. I would have loved all the photos to be taken on the snow but the light was just to harsh and me too impatient.

The heart is actually bit smaller than in this image, only about half the size about 2 inches across.

Six of the eight pieces I made. I hope they like them.
