So what's a girl to do? Binge watch Netflix, start some early online Christmas shopping, and get a jump start on this year's homemade ornaments.
Last year I made paper ornaments that were toddler safe. The year before we did 3 versions of baby's first Christmas (1, 2, 3), and before that we commemorated our first house. This year I'm making ornaments out of felt. Now that we have a little kid's tree for Oliver to enjoy, we have more room for more ornaments, so I'm having fun and keeping myself entertained.
I started with some stars, sewn together with embroidery thread. I stuffed them with felt scraps.
Using the same pattern from Oliver's bird mobiles, I made a felt bird ornament and decorated it with embroidery thread. I like it so much I kind of wish I did all of the nursery birds this way!
So far it's a cute, folksy collection -
Next up... a red bird...!
