IC#46- Handmade Felt Ornaments

Our Iron Craft Challenge this week was to make something for the holidays.  I recently signed up for an ornament swap on Creating the Hive and this seemed like the perfect week to get started on my ornaments.  I need to create 13 ornaments; 12 will go into sets for others and one will go to the organizer.  In return, I will get my own set of 12 unique handmade ornaments.  Cool, huh?


I bought some fun colored felt and played around a bit.  I settled on making felt flowers.  I was first inspired by this project, although mine were a bit more colorful.


I sewed buttons on the front and ribbons on the back.  What do you think?
