Yay! Heather’s back, and this time she’s sharing a snowflake ornament you can make with your felt scraps. Love it! – Erin
Hello My Very Educated Mother Readers! I'm Heather, the creative juice behind the screen at The Sewing Loft! Normally, you will find me there sharing fun tips, tricks and easy patterns to help you "Reclaim" your creativity, one stitch at a time. I'm super flattered that Erin invited me back to be part of the No Ugly Ornaments Challenge. I guess that means you liked my mini trees from last year. This time, I'm sharing an easy snowflake ornament that can be made in a flash with little supplies. And I promise, it will not be ugly!
This project is for sewers all levels.
Skill Level- 1 ButtonMaterials:
- 5" x 6" felt
- 10" of ribbon
- sewing machine
- needle and thread
- clothes pins are optional
- Cut felt into strips. 2" wide and 4" wide.
- Fold small strip in half width wise and sandwich it inside the 4" strip. Fold in half and straight stitch along the long edge.
- At the very end of strip, insert your folded ribbon between the layers and stitch.
- Cut stitched strips into 1/2" sections. 5 sections are needed to make 1 star ornament.
- Dab a dot of glue along the folded edge at side, add loop and secure in place. Continue around to complete the star.
Have fun playing with the size of the felt strips. You can create different shapes and patterns for your snowflake.
And did you "spy" that cute Christmas Tree Ornament tucked onto the package? Well, as an extra bonus today, I'm sharing the "how to" on the blog. Word to the wise, if you thought the snowflake ornament was easy, you will love the tree version! Still want more fun ideas, then come find me on Twitter, Facebook or Pinterest! I promise to keep you stitching in style.
That's a wrap for me. I hope you enjoyed my snowflake ornament and have a wonderful holiday season!
We still have two weeks of ornaments to go! Be sure you don’t miss a thing & subscribe to My Very Educated Mother today or follow via:
