I've been making little felt ornaments as stocking stuffers/gift tie-ons for family and friends. Most of them follow the same basic shapes, but they're lots of fun...

First, for my penguin-fanatic friend:



Then, there are two little sets of snowmen --- one for my mother, and one for my mother-in-law (the all-white ones, to go on her all-white-ornamented tree):









And last (for the time being) but not least, a little milk carton made out of felt for my brother-in-law, whose name begins with M and who drinks milk like it's going out of style:







(This was an idea I got from another crafter's website --- she sells stuffed milk-carton toys. I don't have the link on this computer, unfortunately, but she deserves credit for the idea! I modified the shape a little, and made it into an ornament...)

No, they're french knots, using a couple of strands of embroidery thread. Beads would work equally well, though --- I just didn't have any with me at the time that I made them!

Thanks, everyone, for the kind comments. Smiley
