One more Christmas Ornament Workshop!

December 14, 2011 - the Neighbors and I had a little workshop.  Unfortunately, I didn't get everyone's photos... but here are a couple to show the fun!  :-)

And a fun time was had by all!  :-)

Below is a sample of each of the past 5 years' ornament workshops!

Christmas Ornaments - 2011

Okay!  We were "up to it" this past Monday afternoon and evening!
Another session will happen with neighbor/friend this coming Wednesday!

 Must provide goodies!

Great Beginnings!

The ornament was placed on a piece of white felt with some very strong, double-sided fusible material
between them.  A good steam press and a trim around the ornament gave it more "character."

I can hardly wait to get photos of the other finished ornaments!!
(Not very many were finished during the workshop.  I provided a more ambitious project than I'd realized!)

Happy December - Anticipating Christmas 2011!

Christmas Ornaments 2010

Last year (2010), we had a great deal of fun making Christmas Ornaments!
It was time for our 4th annual Ornament Workshops, here at my house.

(Apologies: I had many things to think about last Winter.  While we did have fun at our workshops, there were worrisome things happening that caused me to miss posting.  So, finally a year later, here is a post!!)

Two days' worth of workshops:  afternoon and evening on 12/09/10.


The Aftermath!

The "Pattern" below.  I made this "little fellow" in 1984. 

What to do next year (2011)?  Check out the next post!
