Gingerbread Ornaments

I mentioned that we had Betz White's Make New or Make Do pattern line, which includes these adorable "Whimsical Holiday Ornaments".  Hannah volunteered to sew two of three up for us.  She used a combination of wool felt and recycled fabric and what she did not hand sew, she used Liquid Stitch to adhere pieces together. 

Every time I stop in the store I see someone leaving with a coordinating stack of wool felt.  It is so cheerful!  The rayon/wool blend is user friendly, soft, and will last much longer without pilling than the craft (polyester) felt.  Check out Betz's blog for a super sweet Ice Cream Cone Ornament tutorial and a rundown of gift ideas from her book Sewing Green.
