I had some scraps left over from my Christmas quilt, so I decided to make a little soft Christmas ornament to give away as a gift. I took a photo Christmas card that we received last year and printed the scanned image directly onto fabric that had freezer paper on the back for stability. It was pretty easy to do and turned out great. Once the image was set onto the fabric, I cut it, sewed it up and stuffed it like a mini pillow. From start to finish, this little project took just an hour. Because the picture was on the larger size, the recipient may end up using it to hang over a doorknob at Christmas rather than as an ornament on a tree but that's just as festive!
This little guy is extra special because sweet D. passed away a month ago and this picture is of her and her great-grand babies. She loved those kids so much and I was happy to create this little Christmas memory for her daughter.
This is the perfect time to start thinking about Christmas presents -- fabric ornaments like this one are great gifts!
