Felt Ornaments

we made felt ornaments this year.
every year we try to make a new ornament to save as keepsakes.
some examples of past ornaments are...
cinnamon applesauce cutouts.
salt dough ornaments
recycled christmas cards ornaments
and now felt ornaments.
we used felt (obviously), cookie cutters, buttons, fiberfill, thread and ribbon
trace your pattern onto the felt and cut them out (you need two of each)
sew on some buttons for decoration

sew two of them together leaving room at the top to add a ribbon for hanging and room to stuff them with the fiberfill.  when you are done adding the stuffing sew them closed.
all four younger kids made at least one.
the little boys gave some to their teachers as gifts and the rest are hanging on our tree.
too cute...
