If you're a last minute gift maker like me, here's a quick, easy, and personalized way to turn your kid's drawings into ornaments!



Materials Needed:

See-through top fabric (I used muslin)
Backing fabric
Fabric marker
Polyfill
~8 inches of ribbon
Scissors
Ruler
Kiddo's drawing



First, cut both your top fabric and backing fabric to about 4 in x 4 in:



Next, place the top fabric on top of the drawing and trace the image onto the fabric using a fabric pen:





Easy, peasy.

Next, layer the fabric pieces right sides together with the ribbon sandwiched in the middle. Make sure the ends of the ribbon are at the top of the drawing so it hangs right side up after sewing.

Sew around the edge, leaving about 2 inches open at the bottom for turning right side out:



Turn right side out:



Stuff with polyfill and hand sew the opening at the bottom:



You can personalize it by adding names, dates, drawing titles, whatever!

I'm sure there's a million things you could do with the drawing once you got it on fabric. I hope this inspires you this holiday season!!

Thanks for looking Smiley

haha...yep, same effect. This works well if you want to mass produce the same pic over and over. I think I made 7 of these for gifts this year. Uniqueness v. sameness...hmmmm. Both great!
