Ok no matter what I do I cannot post a picture of my ornaments that I made as I cannot get them down to the right size. I have posted then in the gallery on the tapanga pages though.

February is posing a problem for me as I do have a sewing machine so any ideas about sewing gifts would be appreciated.

Thank you.

I traced the bottom of my tacky glue bottle for the circles and I used a ruler to draw the triangle within the circle. The tacky glue also came in handy because it helped things to adhere and dry faster. Good luck with your ornaments!

I made ornaments!





Fuzzy needs his hair combed in the first picture...sorry.   For both ornaments I used clear frosted glass ornaments from Michaels.  This one I used fabric samples from Distinctive Fabric - white fur and some hot pink metallic meshy stuff.  Since the fur wasn't big enough to cover the entire thing, I used the hot pink. The hot pink peeks through in a few places when it's hanging up.





This one I used the same ornament, and I disected a couple silk flowers.  The light pink was some kind of silk flower I got that was attached to a gift.  Then I used a few of the petals and the middle things w/ gold glitter on them (I have no idea what they're called) of a pinkish gold Poinsettia from Michaels and a couple of leaves glued to the back.  The leaves didn't work as well as I wanted them too because the plastic on them wouldn't bend and stay attached to the ornament, even with E6000 holding it on. Smiley 

One question...and I'll experiment with this on another ornament first, but should I leave the poinsettia ornament as is, or swirl some light green paint inside?   Maybe completely coated, maybe just swirled in a pattern I don't know yet.  I thought it might help the light pink petals stand out more.

I haven't even started my ornaments yet, this weekend for sure though.  I'll probably just do a bunch of the salt/flour dough ornaments and maybe some with felt.  This weekend I'll be at least starting for sure!

I made the felt stockings for my family I had been procrastinating about - meant to make them for this chiristmas (just gone) but no matter, they are made now - I made them for freinds and extended family but not us.

At Last I found out how to do this. Here are the pine cones I turned into Christmas trees.
