On the 8th day of Christmas

I present to you... more ornaments....


OK so I tried something new, and no it is not perfect, but I'm showing you anyway!!  LOL  I was making new decorative stockings to go with the new decorations for the year, cause honestly, red and white stockings, don't mesh well with sugar plum nightmare stocking holders!!!  So anyway, I got some felt and made some new ones that would look good with them.  The red and white ones will hold all the goodies!!!  Anyway, I had some felt left over, cause honestly I never get just enough, anyway, with the left over felt I decided to make more ornaments.  So after sewing a few mini stockings, and snowmen for the tree, I decided I needed to use the left overs a lot quicker, which of course meant bigger ornaments!!!  I have some holiday chipboard shapes left over from last year so I traced those onto the felt.  Then while cutting them out, I thought, why not stamp on them.  Of course I remembered that this went perfect with Ms. December Bombhsell's theme, for her monthly challenge, to stamp on anything but paper!  So I did!!  Then while getting ready to sew them together, I thought, why not add the thread to the image as sort of a semi embroidery since I already had the thread out and in the needle! 
So I totally know, as I said already, that it isn't perfect, but it's my first attempt!  Come on guy's give me a little credit for having the guts to show it!  I like it and so do my hubby and daughter.  My son on the other hand was like, ehhh whatever you want to do mom!!  LMAO
This is the back where I just stamped garland out of a Bombshell accessory stamp!

So now, I have a different shape in the works using Smeared Ink's Fae's stamp set!  I will totally be showing that one soon!

Off you go to see what all the other Jolly bloggers have made for your pleasure today!  Remember they are listed on the sidebar!

WOW! Great idea to use up some of your felt, and it looks amazing! I can't beleive you did all that stitching, I'd never even attempt that. These would make a perfect little gift too, can't wait to see the Fae :)
