HAND-MADE CHRISTMAS

Each year, I try to make a hand-made ornament to include as a tuck-in gift for a friend.
This year, I made 3" ornaments from some of my recycled wool Pendleton scraps.
 The snowmen are wool applique and embroidery, and are tiny; so it stretched my abilities a little!
They were fun to make - just wish they weren't so tedious, or I would make a bunch more.

I so admire your creativity. Your friends are fortunate to have your goodies to hang on their trees.

Happy Blue Monday!

The Pendleton ornaments are cute, they do look like a lot of work.

Hi Sally! Oh, the little ornaments are so sweet! I made my little granddaughter some Christmas felt ornaments and made a few snowmen similar to yours. You're the best. Merry Christmas, sweet friend.
