    Donna Jordan's latest- I love them!

    I thought you could also make them smaller and they would make darling ornaments.

    I loved them too! And if you just made them in greens and teals, they could be used any time. She's so talented and skilled. I love watching her draft her own patterns.

    I'm wondering if you sewed along each fold if they would be easier to get them folded back where they belong after you wash them?

    I couldn't help myself. I have all four cut out, but I had to go ahead and make the first one.
    I don't want to say how many times I rewound the video to see how she folded it.
    It's a little wonky, but that will improve with practice. I think I'm going to sew all the folds and see how that works.

    Watson, they are wonderful!!!!!!!!!
    I've gotta make some!
    I'm going to try to scale them down to make some ornaments too but I'm not too good at that. If you don't see them you'll know I failed

    What a fun project! She always makes them look so easy.

    A smaller version would make cute ornaments too. Where are my Christmas fabrics?

    Watson's' napkins look like hard Christmas candy. Put me in the Christmas mood despite the fact that all the snow melted. Where is that box marked Christmas?

    This is not a new pattern....I saw it as a free give away in a quilt shop in St. Charles, MO at least 15 years ago when I lived there. Donna Jordan has added the stump as the original pattern does not have one. Personally I prefer without the stump. But old or new, they are fun and easy to make.

    I made some of these in ornament size. They came out great and everyone loved them.

    Yes I made some in 2011 and added the stump myself, it wasn't in the original pattern (which I now have no idea where I downloaded it from)Name:  Karen 2011001_edited (Small).JPG

    If we noticed little pleasures..as we noticed little pains,
    And we quite forgot our losses..and remembered all our gains.
    If we looked for people's virtues..and their faults refused to see,
    What a wonderful place this world would be!

    These are very pretty. I like your more natural stump and prefer the less busy prints.

    My guild has had these napkins made in all sizes at our sale table each year. The small ornament sizes sell the best. We decorate them with tiny Christmas theme buttons and trim.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.
