Christmas gifts

I'm going to work on Christmas gifts today, the first is a Christmas ornament that is my prototype, have made two more in different wools with more embellishments which I love to do, adding embroidery or couched yarns, buttons and then the rusty tin for a hanger.



These are rags balls that I made for myself, but I'm going to make a basket full for a quilting friend. I start with a foam ball and wrap the fabric around the ball.



And then the last is a wool purse made from some wool scraps that have wildlife depicted, bind it with either wool yarn or strips of wool and add an elk antler button.

  2. Each one of your ornaments looks like such a treat. I had better get busy if I want to make things in time for Christmas.

  3. The wool purse is awesome! I love that wool. But the little red guy in the little pan behind the rag balls is kind of scarey.
