August/September Sewing: Ornament Time!

For the fifth year in a row (here’s years #1 and #2 and #3 and #4), I was in charge of designing and coordinating the sewing of felt ornaments to be sold at our Advent Bazaar, supporting the mercy ministries at our church.

027 (800x800)crab (designed by me, and yes, I know it’s missing a bunch of claws/legs but you just try cutting out tiny things from felt!), penguin (from this tutorial), peppermint candy (adapted from this tutorial), manager and baby Jesus (designed by me, inspired by this)

Although I did manage to both sew and photograph all the samples myself this year (unlike last year), there was an amazing team of women who did just about all the sewing of the 70+ ornaments themselves.  I am so grateful to them!!
