ADHolidays: Ornaments a plenty

Hi everyone! For today’s #ADHolidays freebie, I started to make a video, but figured it was easy enough to figure out, so here it is! I used the Made for Mermaids Christmas ornament pattern from last year to create these super sweet ornaments for our tree, using my Aurora Design Fabric scraps! It’s the perfect project to involve the kids.


The tutorial calls for batting, but I used fleece instead. The tutorial calls for just stitching them wrong sides together and leaving the edges unfinished. I just placed mine right sides together, stitched around the edges, THEN turned right side out and inserted the fleece. Then, I stitched the hole on top and attached the ribbon to hang them on in one fell swoop. You can honestly do it either way!
I love that you can trim them with anything to add a bit of spice, and I LOVE that they’re the perfect scrap buster. The kids had a lot of fun helping, too! These would be great for one of those felt trees you place on the wall for the kids to play with. Just cut a tree out of felt and attach it to the wall, then use a bit of velcro on the back of each ornament!
