This ornament idea caught my eye because I finally found a cute way to use up my fabric scraps.
I took strips of fabric that I cut with my Fiskars Rotary Cutter & Ruler. My brother bought it for me several years ago and it’s my go to sewing tool for cutting precise lengths of fabric. I sewed the 1 1/2″ strips together, cut the whole piece in half, sandwiched a piece of quilt batting between two layers, and cut out tree shapes using a paper pattern I made. I used my pinking shears to finish the edges and added a piece of ribbon to hang the ornament. I hadn’t planned on it originally, but these little trees just screamed for ornaments of their own so I scoured my button collection and am I’m really pleased with how these turned out.
Throughout the year I take care of dogs for friends and family and I also take tons of pictures of the dogs. For Christmas, I want to give each person a mini-album of their dog. And yes, I’m aware that I’ve ruined the surprise.
