    Hand Stitched Felt Ornaments Round 2

    After stitching the first round of ornaments for the class at my small local Craft group, I decided to make some more. All the ornaments are hand stitched and beaded from picture images, I made all my own patterns except fro the mice, for which I have very old patterns from when I began making them in the 1980's. I thoroughly enjoyed making these ornaments and found it very relaxing as we do lead quite a busy life with still being self employed after almost 50 years. I am hoping we can retire soon.

    Along with the pictures of the ornaments I will post my Christmas Angel that I made 24 years ago and repaired her at our recent quilt retreat. I washed her and the wire I had placed in her arms bled so I had to remake her arms, body and underskirt which is all in one piece. McCalls pattern #5013

    I also made a small plaid Christmas Stocking decorated with fancy stitching and buttons.

    I couldn't upload all the pictures, so here are the rest. The Santa ornament was a free downloaded pattern.

    They are all so beautiful. I love them..
    Besides my family, my pets are the most important things to me. I have had birds, a dog or cats since I was about 8 years old. The cruelest thing you can do to me is take my animals away.

    Wonderful! I love the felt Christmas items. Our Santa stockings are kits that I adapted to fit each person. You have inspired me to find that bag of extra sequins and beads (left over from the kits) and get to work. I love the white felted ones.

    I don't usually care for hand made ornaments, but I have to say yours are all just beautiful. Very well done. I especially liked the little mice. Thanks for sharing.

    All the ornaments are cute, but I especially like the littel grey Koala; is there a pattern for him?

    What beautiful work you do! Love them all but the koala has a special meaning to me. I might have missed it but do you sell them?
