hi everyone!
i haven't worked with felt since primary school, but this christmas i felt like making felt ornaments. great sentence  Roll Eyes
it's a little hard to see, but i didn't use glue. everything is stitched by hand with crocheting thread (i don't own embroidery floss)
here they are:

on my almost-christmas tree:


i love the rocking horses! i cut 2 more for myself, but until now i had no time to do them: it took around 9 hours to finish this one they look the same on both sides. it's got sequins and the yellow and orange dots are secured with french knots (french knots another "first" for me  Cheesy)



   

   


after cutting 28745 shapes out of felt:


presents!
this year  was a very "green" christmas. most of the felt ornaments were presents, i also made baubles: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=333575.msg3853134#msg3853134

i didn't buy anything except a plain t-shirt to print on it and 2 metres of felt :-)
presents are wrapped in old newspaper and repurposed tissue paper


i also made my own tags and cards i used for cupons and or notes that i wrapped with the presents (sorry for the bad pictures)
 







--------------------- Patterns ----------------------

that's the patterns i used. the dashed lines might help you to arrange the ornaments.
the scans were really bad after craftster-resizing, so i draw real patterns for you Smiley

   

   

i made the patterns myself, feel free to use them for your private crafting. i'd love to see pictures if you make some Smiley

Love them all, but that rocking horse is adorable!  You've inspired me to try my hand at embroidery and hand stitching, never did it before, nor have I worked with felt.  Thanks for the inspiration!

I love your wrapping as well!

I hate to ask, but did you use a pattern for the felt ornies, would you be will to share where you found them if you did use a pattern.

Again, Excellent job!

i didn't use a pattern for any of them, but i saw a very similar sheep at this etsy store i can't remember
i sketched the shapes during a not so interesting lecture at university, so i guess they're sill somewhere between my notes  Roll Eyes

i could scan them if someone is interested :-)

Thank you so much for adding your scans!

Going to go to buy some felt next weekend and get started on these!  I can't stop looking at that rocking horse!

Thanks again!
