A Handmade Christmas

I made a goal this year to make handmade ornaments to decorate Christmas packages and for my own tree at home.  

With only 5 weeks left until Christmas it was high time to get started! After some browsing online I pinned a load of tutorials and ideas for later use. I used a tutorial from Better Homes and Gardens
to create the lovely felt iceskate ornament below.  They look complicated but are pretty easy to make.

And I found a tutorial for this pretty snowflake ornament at Oh Happy Day.

Felt is very inexpensive and both ornaments required only the felt, sewing thread, embroidery thread, and scissors.

I'm so pleased with these that I can't wait to have a try at some others!
