I'm in a very exclusive, super secret, triad of sisterhood and for xmas I made my super secret sisters these ornaments. 



I printed some slightly edited clip art onto unbleached muslin, then sewed each piece to a different holiday print.



I wanted them to be similar, but not exactly the same (kind of like us), so the reindeer face different directions and have different colored jingle bell harnesses and there are two types of trees.



The beads are supposed to look like popcorn and cranberry garlands put on the trees for the birdies to eat!



I sewed a ribbon hanger into them and pushed a clear bead on them to give them a slightly more finished look w/o making them too fancy.  My sisters are already almost too fancy!



I ran a test print on paper before running the fabric through and didn't want to waste it, so I included the reindeer on the address labels.  Of course, on these I added a red nose!
