This felt ornament design was my first stab at little something gifts this year. In the end I liked my sketch better than the finished product. But I went ahead and finished her up with some shiny beads and some sparkle and I think she makes a cute girly ornament for Phoebe for this year. Still not as sparkly as last year’s girly ornament (which she’s making grabby hands at below) but getting there.

** updated to add: I realize a. I hate the word girly but can’t think of an appropriate alternative and b. it seems from what I said that I made last year’s ornament, nope! I bought it at Macy’s (I think). **

    I battle “girly” in my own language as well. I’ve been using “sparkly” and “fancy” instead. My daughter loves monkeys. I think I’ll fashion a Monkey Princess ornament. Thanks for the inspiration!
