felt ornaments I have known

Last year I went a bit crazy planning all these felt ornaments I'd make (pages of drawings), and I actually did make some (remember Chelsea?), but not nearly as many as I wanted. This year, same thing. Only now I have the drawings from last year and new drawings from this year vying for my crafting attention.

Here is the first installment of a felt ornament retrospective from last year. These I already had bad pictures of, and they are no longer in my possession because they were gifts last year. I'll have more next post once I can take some good photos. I can't take any good ones today, it is absolutely dismal here, raining cats and dogs. A great day to be in your pyjamas with a cuppa joe.

This one was for my dinosaur-crazy nephew.

This one for my friend Robyn's fish-crazy son.
Sorry about the lighting, it was in my living room at night.

This one for my friend Robyn's elephant crazy daughter.

With a little recycled box to package them both in. I love these candy cane pipe cleaners!

  3. These are fabulous and such great inspiration. I had actually thought to do a theme tree centered around the book Good Night Moon for my 18 mo grandson, but time has not been on my side. However you have newly inspired me for next year.

  4. Those are adorable! No wonder you can't get them all done, they are so intricate! Mine are two pieces of simple felt sewed together, zip, zip, zip ;). You put me to shame!

  14. Love your ornaments!! I too have been addicted to making felt ornaments this year... rather than doing the other 'more important' things I should be doing. Love your blog.
