Hand Sewn Decorations
The underlying theme of my Christmas is Handmade & Reuseable!

I want to make lasting ornaments, decorations and gifts by hand this year, because I feel like it is all too commercial. Not that I dont love going and buying my husband that brand new video game he wanted, as a surprise.

I just think we spend too much money on the gifts and not enough time and though goes into them.

Which is silly when I have so many skills and tools at my disposal :)

I made these felt ornaments for my own tree :) I dont really have any other ornaments because my husband and I have always shared Christmas with other families & friends, plus we have been living in small apartments. Last year we skipped Christmas all together because I was so mad about living in a place with no snow, that I refused to believe it was the Holiday Season, lol. Anyway this year we live in a bigger house (though still in Hawaii) and I am going to decorate my house, until I have no room for any more decorations. I'm hoping that will help get me in the mood for the holidays!

Enjoy <3

Did you have trouble cutting the felt? I feel like my scissors are not sharp enough, and how big are those? I traced cookie cutters, but now I feel like they will be too small to stuff, my husband says that they can probably be stuffed just fine, but IDK!!

I think my circles started out at about 4 inches. I haven't pulled them out this year because we're moving before Christmas, so everything is getting packed. Your regular fabric scissors should be fine. If your still having trouble making crisp cuts, try placing the pattern on the felt, then covering it with clear packing tape. This will hold everything in place flatter than pins will and it will also keep everything stiff while your cutting.
