    Every year I used to buy an ornament for the Children & Grandchildren. Then I started making them using fabrics that ,I feel, represent them. BUT!! I'm running out of 'new' ornament ideas...need help!! THANKS!! & Merry Christmas!!!

    Here are some pics of past ornaments...I love crafting of any kind!! but was thinking, something with fabric. :)

    I've made these for several years now - always seem to get a good response, and they're very easy (and relatively inexpensive!).

    how about a paper pieced tree or something that you can embroider their name and the year?

    this could be cute too: http://whipup.net/2007/10/09/tutoria...cone-ornament/

    and I've done TONS of these: http://allsorts.typepad.com/allsorts...o-your-el.html

    Those are wonderful. I saw some really cute ornaments made from yo-yos at a craft fair last summer. Wish I had taken a picture.

    Have your done tiny stockings? I like to do small patchwork Christmas stockings with enough room inside to put in a gift card or folded paper money. I do some pieced no name ones for a quick gift for someone I forgot and I embroider the names on the front of the family ones. I hang them on the tree for the Christmas season. They are handy for paperboy, mailman etc.

    Sorry don't have any ideas for you but wanted to say I love all of your projects, especially the Dora ornament. My little DGD would love to have one of those on her tree.

    Go to Angie's Bits and Pieces site. She has a "Freebies" section with several really cute ornaments to make. I love that site.

    What great ideas! It's hard to believe, but you're right, it's time to get started on Christmas gifts. My LQS has been running an event once a month called, "Twelve Days of Christmas." She is teaching a new project every event. We've learned some new ideas for Christmas gifts.

    How about making jo-jo's out of Christmas fabric and a shiny button or Christmas pin in the hole in the middle. Our church made these and gave them out in the neightborhood. They turned out really cute.

    How about a set with the nativity symbols? OR the emblem for the college their parents are expecting them to attend?

    I have a ton of links for sewn & quilted ornaments on my personal website. There are some really cool ones on it. I keep adding to the list whenever I see new tutorials...
    Maybe you will find some ideas for next year...

    There are a few on that list that I want to make this year...
