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 says to sew 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! If you aren’t a seamstress, you could easily hand sew these or just use some fabric glue!
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! A felt tree is one of the projects I’ve had on my to do list for quite some time…but I’m guessing it will be going onto next years list, as well. My sewing table is buried under a pile of projects almost as tall as I am!

Have fun and Happy Holidays!
