In between playing tiny house and kitchen with Milli, I’ve been using up a some of my scrap Christmas fabric to make ornaments. I’ve done two different kinds so far – Christmas trees and fortune cookies.
The Christmas trees are made from 4″ strips of fabric cut into triangles (one for each side), with twill binding tape for the trunks, and yellow buttons at the top for stars. I used my scrap Soft & Stable for the center of each ornament to help give it structure. These ornaments are just stitched around the outside and left with open edges for a bit of a rustic look.
My fortune cookie ornaments were made using this tutorial from 24-7-356. They are a layer of craft felt and a layer of fabric sewn together and then twisted in a special way.I’ve made almost 3 dozen of them so far, so I have a feeling I’ll be giving away quite a few of them this Christmas.
What have you been working on lately?
