Ornament Week: Monday

Our Monday offering is another cute felt ornament by Salem Morin.

You'll want to gather the following:
• Felt
• Fabric
• Ric rac
• Floss
• Poly-fill

1. Cut out your star. Cut a star from two pieces of felt (front and back pieces). Cut another star, same shape but a little smaller, from your fabric.

2. Sew fabric star to felt with floss.

3. Sew front and back together. Add the ric rac between the front and back as you sew, leaving part of it hanging out. It's a little tricky to get it started, but once you get going it gets easier. Add a loop to hang it from before you start and remember to leave a nice big hole to fit the stuffing through.

TIP: Crimp in the ric rac on the inside corners and fold over on the outside corners.

4. Stuff it.
5. Embellish. Add buttons and bows for a little more excitement.
