Felt On The Fly color guides for my Twelve Days Ornament Series

I have worked with Janet at Felt On The Fly to personally select three deep, jewel toned palettes of her gorgeous 100% merino wool felts for my ornaments. If you combine all three palettes and use these guides to make all the samples I've designed for each, you'll finish a complete multi-colored set of my Twelve Days ornaments.

Just want to focus on just one or two of the color palettes? No problem, just use the color guides for the palette you want as inspiration for making the rest of your set in the same color combos.
Purchase the complete Jewel Colorway from Janet's shop here! 

I thought I'd mention that FOTF also has their own in-house suggested palette with sewn samples to view, which is based on the main photos of my patterns. You can view that 'Original' in-house palette here in her shop!

And of course, the PDF patterns for the ornaments can be purchased at my Etsy shop.

I hope these color guides were helpful to you!
:-) Happy sewing!


  1. I purchased Maid and completed her in the color way that's on the cover of the pattern. Does that color combo have a name? Does it look better if all the 12 ornaments are made out of the same colors. I was going to tackle partridge next but it seems more vibrant on the pattern front but sort of similar. Yikes I'm getting confused! I discovered later the more vibrant Maids. I like them a lot. Should I just start over?

    1. Hey, Sara! Thanks so much for your order. The colorway on the cover of the pattern is from the Benzie Design bundle #2: https://mmmcrafts.blogspot.com/p/twelve-days-ornaments-benzie-colors.html
      Whether you prefer all your ornaments made in the same colors or a hodge podge of different palettes is totally up to you! If you visit my Pinterest boards and IG tag #twelvedaysornaments you can see lots and lots of ornaments and decide what suits your tastes the best.

    2. There are 3 Twelve Days boards here: https://www.pinterest.com/mmmcrafts/boards/
      And here's the IG link:

    3. Hello! I just wanted to mention that the 'Original' colorway supplies kit at FeltOnTheFly includes 100% wool felt for all twelve ornaments based on the colors shown in the main photos of each of Larissa's patterns. Individual ornament kits in those colorways are also available.


      I so agree with Larissa - so many palettes from which to be inspired!

  2. Hello! I am making the full set of 12 ornaments in the emerald colorway. I’ve been searching for color guides for all 12 ornaments, but I can’t find it anywhere. Do you have this — or at least a photo of all 12 in emerald — available?

    1. Hey there! My set was 5 ornaments in each colorway, so I do not have a color guide for all 15 ornaments in the Emerald colorway. You can use the 5 shown above to inspire you to create the rest of the series in that colorway. There are also already a few all-Emerald sets made by other crafters shown under the hashtag #twelvedaysornaments on Instagram. You'll have to scroll through to see. :-)

  3. Hello! I have purchased the original colorway from FOTF. Do you have DMC color guide for that colorway?

    1. Hi there, no that color palette was actually done by Janet at Felt On The Fly, loosely based on the main photos from my patterns, so she will have that info for you. She typically sends a very thorough color guide with your felt purchase. :-)
