Ornament #2 – Paw Print Felt Heart {30 Days of Christmas Ornaments}

30 Days Christmas OrnamentsOrnament #2 – Paw Print Felt Heart01d050687d911acb7a5d3eb94dbdefc71cdab55f4c

This ornament uses two of the my most favorite shapes – the heart and the dog paw.

I used wool felt in two main colors and red for the tiny heart.  I cut two large hearts out of chocolate brown and the paw out of tan.  I first attached the paw to one of the hearts using embroidery floss and a running stitch.  I attached the red heart with a tiny bit of fabric glue.  Then I put the two brown hearts together and secured the ribbon loop before completing a running stitch around the perimeter of the heart. Right before I reached the top of the opposite side, I stuffed the heart with polyester fiberfill and continued around until I reached my starting point.






This project was such a wonderful reminder of all the stitching I used to do.  My mom-in-law taught me to cross stitch when I was 16 and I took to it like a duck to water (Thanks Lynn.)   As with most of my craft projects, I have more patterns and floss than I could ever hope to use up.  I’m glad I’m able to use the floss with projects like this.  Maybe this venture with the needle and thread will encourage me to pick out a pattern to stitch again.  Maybe I’ll wait until after 30 Days of Christmas Ornaments is over ;-).

Quest46LogoItem #24 – Make Mike a Dr. Who Quilt

There’s a website I follow called Fandom In Stitches.  They post stitching and quilting patterns for fans of sci-fi pop culture.  And they have a pattern for a quilt featuring the 12 doctors of Dr. Who individually stitched on each block.  I’ve wanted to make Mike a quilt for years and when I saw this I knew it was the one.  Sshhhh it’s a secret ;-).

I offered to let mom use my paw as the pattern for this ornament, but she said I was too wiggly.  Can you imagine me being too wiggly?

    ELF! Definitely my favorite Christmas movie. And these crafts are really making me wish I knew how to sew beyond the basic ‘i can probably sew on a button’ haha.

    • gracieed says:

      I love Elf also. I’m also a big fan of White Christmas. And you could totally sew. I’m sure YouTube has some good tutorials to walk you through the basics. It’s just a needle and thread. Give it a go! And then let me know how you did :-).

    Day late on this one… no particular favorite movie as I rarely watch one more than once. I loved finding all the B level holiday movies on the Hallmark channel last year – some fun, touching stories.

    • gracieed says:

      I’ll be releasing my December Holiday Movie List on December 1st. Most of them are oldies, but goodies. Oh and those Hallmark movies can reduce me to a blubbering mess. It’s great!
