Need Ornaments?

Need some more ornaments for the tree? 
 How about making some of your own!     

Have felt?  And left over beads?  How about paperclips?  Here's what you can do:

Vintage style felt ornies 
I made these little ornies in just an hour and two.  I cut out the felt pieces (for the blue one I used a pinking shears).   Then some of the trim pieces I adhered with needle and thread and others I glued on with my hot glue gun.  Some I decorated with beads. 

Then I sewed the front and the back together leaving  the top open.  I stuffed them with leftover stuffing.  Before finishing sewing them together, I added a paperclip to simulate the wire hanger at the top of the ornament.  Need the pattern?  Here ya go:

Click on the picture and then print! You can adjust the size to your needs with your printer or by hand with a grid.  Enjoy! And, you could even use these as package decorations!  What ever you do, have FUN doing it!
