I bought a couple bags of chenille stems at Michael's - some just fuzzy and some glittery. Sara, our neighbor girl, came over and made ornaments with us. They each made three ornaments and these are Jacob's creations. I showed them how to do the candy cane and bell ornament but the heart trio was his design!! Pretty cool, huh?
I had another project for him to do when we were finished with the ornaments. I took a Christmas panel that was intended to be ironed on a sweatshirt and instead turned it into a Christmas banner. I ironed the fusible web on the panel and had Jacob cut out the smaller pieces and he wanted me to cut out the tree. Then I took a rectangle of heavy red cotton fabric and ironed over an edge 1/2" on all sides and then sewed the white trim around three edges. I folded the top over and using fusible web, ironed it in place to create a pocket for the dowel. Added a ribbon to hang it with and some bells for some holly jolly jingle!! And here's his finished piece.......a nice gift for his mom. We did another project for his mom that I'll share next week.
