I turned myself into a crocheting machine the last week and finished a large amount of ornaments for co-workers and family members. These star ones in basic cotton, are from a free pattern from Caron and were super easy - just 4 rounds. I cranked out the middle of the motif (first three rds) and then finished them off on the bus commute. For such simple items, they were very well received and peeps loved them - I liked the idea for work, because the shape is generic enough for any religion or lack thereof, and could be used outside of Christmas if someone didn't celebrate it.

The Caron pattern: http://www.caron.com/projects/ss/star_ornament.html



I did the rainbow ones for the lesbian contingent at work. They were happy to get a pride-themed item that was both Christmas-y and subtle, plus able to be used outside of tree decorating.



I also did these snowmen - just a basic white circle, glued on a felt nose, fabric paint for eyes/mouth, and then just did different circle-based motifs for the background (glue the face on).

Your stars came out fabulous - I love the snowmen as well... but I have to be partial to the stars since they look like the ones I designed for Caron Smiley
I swore that I would make ornaments this year and I was a total slacker!!

I had the pattern at the bottom but I moved up towards the top so it's more visible.

Yup - sure did  Smiley 
I love seeing things made from things I designed.  I think it's so cool.  I originally didn't have them done in those colors.  I liked them with white centers with red or green outers.  They reminded me of minty stars Smiley
