Ornaments done!

Before I forget...linking to

Can't believe that I wrapped up these ornaments so fast. Once I started I just kept going. Don't you love when that happens?

Here they are before they were stuffed. I ended up using interfacing to give them more weight.

Here they are completely done.

I thought I would post some photos of how my daughter decorated with greens and some of the ornaments I made in the past. I also made the Santa face tree skirt. She lives in a condo in an old box factory.

I did not make the dinosaur. I wish I had. I should have made her others, but back then I had to have commercial pattern to make things like this.

These are the ones I made from some of the characters from Nightmare Before Christmas. These were the first ornaments that I designed myself instead of working from a pattern. How many ornaments have I made her? I have been making them each year since she was born in 1989. That means for 27 years without fail I have made an ornament and have had them all done before Christmas. And a few years I have made more than one. So I guess the total is about 30.

Thanks as always for reading.


  1. Good job! And I really enjoyed seeing how your daughter incorporates the ornaments you make her into her decorating. Quite an unusual cast of characters!

  2. What a wonderful tradition that will create fond memories for your daughter.

  3. Wow. You are very talented and very creative. I mostly follow patterns for anything I do. Well, except for scrap quilts sometimes.
    Merry Christmas to the whole family.
