Ornament #8 – Felt Dog Bone {30 Days of Christmas Ornaments}

30 Days Christmas OrnamentsOrnament #8 – Felt Dog Bone0172bd496214e0ed12185ad8b4cc42f2f7340eef25

For today’s ornament I’m once again playing with felt and embroidery floss.  I made a dog bone pattern, but out two pieces of white felt, a small heart and set to stitching.


When I made the Paw Print Felt Heart on Day #2, I used a running embroidery stitch to attach the heart and to sew the front and back parts together.   Today I wanted to use a blanket stitch, but it’s been many years since I worked that stitch so I consulted YouTube and found a great tutorial.

In no time at all, the dog bones were stitched and stuffed.  I used a polyester fiberfill stuffing just like the Paw Print Felt Heart.






These would also be cute with your dog’s name stitched on them.  I think I may have two make 3 more for you know who.

Did momma say “fun run”?  I’m not sure what “fun” is, but I know what “run” is. We should help her with that.

    I’m with Emi haha, fun and run are antonyms as far as I’m concerned. Those bones are freaking ADORABLE tho.
