Yes, I know it's the middle of summer, but I seem to find myself making Christmas ornaments almost all year long! Partly because my guild has a fund-raising booth at a summertime art festival in August, so we need things like this to sell in the booth.
Here are some close-up samples.
Most of the designs are from patterns I have purchased. But I made up some of the designs myself.
An easy way was to "print" a word having to do with Christmas.
I drew this Christmas tree pattern.
Here is another of my word ornaments.
I had an amusing conversation with MisterStitches recently about these ornaments. I told him that I don't think I can ever stop making these ornaments. If I find that I have some of the small muslin rectangles left over, then I have to cut some more colored strips to make borders. If I have border strips left over, then I need to cut some more muslin rectangles. MisterStitches said, "Why don't you just throw the leftover pieces away?" Now, isn't that a silly thing to say! And I told him so!! "I can't just throw fabric away."
He just doesn't seem to get it.
