On the Fourth day of Christmas

On the Fourth day of Christmas my true love made for me…

Quilted Fabric Ornaments

Many, many years ago my Nana used to make these quilted fabric ornaments. She made the  red one pictured above. I love opening the boxes of ornaments each year and reminiscing about past Christmases.

I thought that I would try making a few quilted ornaments and put my own spin on them. My quilted ornaments are made mainly from my husband’s old dress shirts. I am up-cycling, and adding a little of his personality into our decor and Christmas.

Every year I make an ornament for each of my kids so that when they grow up they will have ornaments from their childhood for their trees. They both chose their own fabrics, the red one is for my oldest, and the black one is for my youngest.

I found an excellent video tutorial here.

Materials:

  • 3″ Styrofoam balls
  • Fabric or old dress shirts
  • Straight pins (about 150 per ornament)
  • ribbon

Happy Crafting.
