    We have six grands and we
    yearly gift them with ornaments but the Hallmark stores are closing down nearby. This year I decided to make them and used the pattern link that was posted by QuiltingNan. However, my mm to inches chart gave me two big ones. So I decided to go smaller and the little ones were only 5" square. Then I made two mid-size ones. Decorated them with button eyes, red glue-on crystal noses, hot-fix crystals at the log junctions for buttons, bigger pompoms for the hats. Really gave them some zing. Embroidered the dates on. They were really pleased and so I was. Thanks, ladies for the wonderful ideas and link. Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. Looking forward to the New Year's posts with beautiful pictures from everyone.

    Diane007, here is the link: http://cucitocreativo.xs4.it/i-miei-...nta-is-coming/. Also re-reading QuiltnNan's post, discovered that original was posted by Pollytink so you might want to check that out as well. I had printed the instructions from the site off. Hope this helps. Also there was a really cute snowman posted here earlier as well.

    How cute they are. I like the "size range" that you have used.

    Rechecked the snowman link and it was a sitting up model, not a hanging one. But pretty doggoned cute. Reckon if the stuffing was lightweight, it could be made hanging as well. It was really decorated and so attractive.

    Sew totally cute. I'm printing that out now. I have plenty of Christmas fabric and with Winter Storm Goliath on its way, I should have some time.

    I forgot to mention that by the time I got to the third set, I attached the batting and did a flip and sew and it was already quilted when I finished. Also easier to attach buttons too. You will have to add a separate batting triangle for the hat before you seam it up. If I were doing it again, I would have done them all that way.
