Ornament Finishes!

I'm off to the extended-in-laws in a few minutes for our pre-Christmas Christmas. They used to spend the day baking cookies but now they spend it crafting ornaments. Something about too much sugar in cookies. I have no idea what they are talking about.

Before I go, I thought you'd like to see the gifts I'm giving them this year. Three of the mini ornaments I worked on this year have now been completed and will travel to their new homes today.

I'm not too happy with how they were centered. The instructions said to cut the aida 3.5" x 4" but this really didn't leave enough room to get them properly lined up on the cardboard backing. 4.5" x 4.5" would have been much better. Maybe in the future I will buy extra aida and make my squares larger. This ornament kit thing taught me several lessons, most of which involve never buying an ornament kit again. It would be much better to buy a book of patterns and kit it up myself.

Happy Un-Cookie Day All!


  1. They look great! Hope you have a lovely time :)

  2. I think the ornaments look great Kaelyn. I have that kit that I bought when it first came out. I'm going to save the big piece of fabric and just use scrap fabric. They are on my list to start in Jan/Feb.


  3. I think they look great too :) They will make lovely gifts.
