Felt ornaments

So our Christmas tree is up but not decorated.  I want to make some felt ornaments so the twins can help decorate the lower branches of the tree.   I actually ventured out to a few stores Friday afternoon for some supplies.  No Black Friday mobs in the afternoon.  

Future felt ornaments

The white cutouts are some of my paper patterns that I’ll need to transfer to cardstock or thin plastic so I can reuse them.  Not shown are assorted beads and embroidery floss.
Starting new projects always gets my heart pumping and my creative juices flowing.  I have a few projects I need to finish before I dive into these…listed in no particular order:
    1. Musica mitts: one down, one to go. Deadline: December 22.  I’m using fingering weight yarn and think sport weight would have been better for a larger mitt.
    2. Three Spud & Chloe earflap hats: one finished, one waiting for strap, one waiting to get started. Deadline: December 10 for these two  and December 22 for the third one.

    Toddler size hats

    3. Buttons for the above mentioned hats.  Deadline December 9.
    4. Seamless slippers for Dr. Professor: finished except for sewing on the rest of the sole. Deadline: last week.

    Teal and heather green seamless slippers

    5. Soakers: One halfway finished, one still in a ball.  Deadline: December 10.
    6. Ms Ida mittens: One thumb to go.  Deadline: December 9 (though the recipient wanted them yesterday).  This is an old progress picture. 

    Ms Ida CLM right palm

    I must confess that these are not for the meek.  For some reason I could not get the thumbs right so abandoned the pattern and figured out another way to decrease and keep in the pattern.  Sort of….  If I’m brave, I’ll post a picture.

  1. I can’t wait to see the felt ornaments – and I love Spud and Chloe – you know I don’t know if it was through here – so far I’ve made a bunny and an un-as yet- sewn together frog! 😀


  2. I really should read things properly before I press submit – I meant to say

    I don’t know if it wasn’t through your blog that I found them – because I only came across them recently! 😀


  3. I wish I had as much ambition as you have. My projcts are failing by the wayside. Your pictures and projects are great. I enjoyed the comments made by other people.


  4. NEVER….I repeat….NEVER do those Miss Ida mittens again.
    As least you finish what you start….be it somewhere in the future. If I hate it so much or can’t get it right….I throw it away. Maybe that’s why I only do simple, easy things. You like a challenge…me? Not so much.


Your thoughts? I read them all.
