Next week is Christmas and I still have a few gifts to sew!
And I missed posting this for Thursday Threads yesterday, sorry about that. And speaking of Thursday Threads, it will return next year called Thursday Threads – A Day in My Sewing Room!
What is my “Project in the Works?”
Homemade Christmas Ornaments.
For these ornaments, I hand drew on paper a stocking and a house. I already had circles cut out for templates.
Using these templates and 100% wool felt, I cut out these shapes. I also cut out cotton fabric squares and rectangles. I used what fabric that was in my scrap bag, as I did not want to buy any more fabric! I stitched these cotton scraps onto the front of the wool felt shapes.
And I just had to sew some decorative stitches on the ornaments! Now all I need to do is add jute string or a ribbon and they are all set to hang on the tree.
If you are looking for some sewing gift ideas, here’s a couple of my older posts:
Pictured above is a gift card pocket from Father’s Day Ideas and
in Mother’s Day Ideas there is a cool way to add fabric to a pretty picture frame.
I still need to buy a few more gifts this weekend. On the top of my list to give that is not homemade? Books!
