Christmas Fun

     Every Christmas I enjoy making some kind of decoration and/or gift. I especially like working with felted wool.  One of my favorite projects is making wool/cotton heart ornaments for our tree.  This year I have added embroidered birds which are designed as I go (I only made a pattern for the bird shapes).  The embroidered layer is usually silk, wool, knit or velvet.  I fuse felted wool or knit under it for strength and a border.  I love the coziness of the felted fabrics!  I have posted a few pics below.
