I'm in the Make Stuff mode so I'll post updates of my newest ornaments here rather than posting separate threads. Smiley

First, I started with quilted balls.

This one turned out the best!



My second (sorry for the blurriness...dunno what happened!)




My suggestions for making these ornaments.

There are two types of foam balls available, the smooth crafting type and the rough floral type. I tried both and much prefer the rough floral ball. It has more grab for the fabric.

I tried several different tools for poking the fabric in. I did NOT like using the cuticle stick as it really hurt my fingers. I ended up using a small flat head screwdriver (approx. 1/4" wide).

Avoid striped patterned fabric if you are even the tiniest OCD. Oy, that drove me nuts as it is really hard to keep the stripes straight.

Not only a snowman (which I love to collect!) but my first amigurumi! *happy dance*

Link to roxycraft's pattern: http://roxycraft.com/crochet_bo_snowman.htm

He turned out HUGE, approx 5" across, because I think my thread was too heavy. I love him all the same!

I am still learning to crochet but I will say that this ornament was not difficult at all. Bo is a great confidence booster. Cheesy




Ok, the next couple will be embroidered. I promise!...I keep getting distracted by a new craft. LOL!

I did something like this as a 4h project when I was younger. It was a new sew quilt block. I used a butter knife to poke the fabric in, it seemed to work pretty well.

I've been remiss in updating my thread. LOL

Here's a pic of the snowflakes that I've been making like crazy.




And the first of my apliqueed felt ornament for this year.

This is my take on a nom inspired Santa




And for a bit of whimsy, a fortune cookie ornament!
