    Hi everyone!

    I wanted to share something I do with all the little scraps I accumulate-they're Christmas ornaments made out of 2.5" squares of fabric. I got the pattern online from www.make-stuff.com. Here's the link for it:

    http://www.make-stuff.com/projects/quiltball.html

    They are so much fun to make...for me it takes about an hour to do, but it is easy when you are watching (or listening to) TV! Here is a picture of a few of mine:

    Have fun,
    Christine

    They are not expensive to make, and my kids' teachers go crazy for them!

    Thanks for sharing your Christmas ornament. I made some in a craft class at our church years ago, but forgot how to make them. Thanks for the site so that I can make more.

    Exquisite! Thanks so much for sharing. I have to make some of those. I'm thinking they can be used to trim the tree, or to trim gift packages, or as a unique hotess gift or even to put a place setting for your Christmas party. Can you tell I love them? LOL

    These are a lot of fun to make and a great way to use up scraps and they are also spectacular made from the fancy glittzy wired ribbon you can find at the dollar store. If you wait till after Christmas, you can often pick it up for less than a dollar a roll! The dollar store is also a great place to pick up the massive amount of pins you'll need to make these....you can get about a 1000 for a dollar! Here's a hint that I found making these easier.....instead of trying to pick up those pins out of the container, I pick up a glob of them on a round magnet. They come up in a jumble and are a lot easier to get ahold of while you're working.
