I'm really excited about this swap!  I heard about how great this swap was a long time ago and I've been waiting and waiting for registration to pop up for this years so I could join in!  I have to make 10 ornaments that will be sent to Ms Small Fox and she will then redistribute them and I will receive 10 different ornaments back....such a fun idea!

I'm not sure what I'll make yet, but there is lots of inspiration on flickr from last years swap! Check it out - they are so creative and special, I can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with this time around.

Fundamentally Ornamental

These are the little biscuit cutter felt ornaments that I made for the Thimbleprims Studio Christmas Ornament Swap....yay!  So cute, even if I do say so myself!

They are really easy to make.  All you need is:  some biscuit cutters, sheets of felt, embroidery thread, some bead/sequins to decorate and stuffing.

1) Trace around your cutter on the felt x 2 and cut out.
2) Lay the 2 cut out pieces on top of each other and sew around the edge in blanket stitch using ebroidery thread.  Leaving a small opening to suff.
3) Stuff your ornament and sew-up the opening.
4) Decorate with what ever takes your fancy!
5) Add some ribbon to hang on your Chrissy tree!
