Felt peppermint Christmas ornaments

Last week I signed up for my first Christmas craft swap organised by Laura at Dropstitch. It was the first one I’d seen and swapping parcels of crafty goodness always gets me in the mood for the festive season. The swap was simple – make four oops five (so glad I re-read the instructions!) handmade Christmas ornaments.

I had a good look through my craft books and Pinterest boards and found some very cute felt peppermint Christmas ornaments which I knew would be perfect. I love working with felt and the felt version of any Christmas sweet has to be better for me than the real thing.

Christmas crafting with felt

I got to work cutting out felt pieces and stitched them on my sewing machine which I am finally getting to grips with. I made a couple of traditional red and white ones them decided to mix it up with some other colours, so have pink, purple and even a green one.

I’m really pleased with them and hope the recipients like them.
