So this year I'm focusing more on needle-felted ornaments, rather than stitched ones. I still think stitched ornaments are probably the prettiest kind (I would love to someday have a Christmas tree decorated with nothing but hand-embroidered ornaments; wouldn't that be gorgeous?), but they are awfully time-consuming, and as usual I find myself racing against the clock as Christmas approaches.
I put a few felted ornaments up in my Etsy shop and have been encouraged by the response, so I'm going to make some more over the next couple of days. If I find time, I also want to write up a quick tutorial on making simple felt ball ornaments. They're so quick and easy to make that they're a fantastic last-minute gift idea for crafty folks.
Anyway, here are a couple of the ornaments I've made so far:
PURPLE BALL ORNAMENT WITH STARS (this one sold almost as soon as I put it in my shop!:
MUSHROOM BALL ORNAMENT (this one is probably my favorite; I think mushrooms are so cute...):
Thank you Andrea and Merry Christmas to all!
