making ornaments with Phoebe

Phoebe has been into sewing cards lately so I had the idea to make some sewing card ornaments for her to give to family and friends this year. This is our first attempt, mr. snowman. I cut him out of some really nice thick felt I have and then I used a tiny hole puncher to make holes around the edge for her to stitch. I think next I might print some out on cardstock for her to stitch.

    I love this idea- it would be perfect for my daughter. What kind of hole punch would work and where would I buy one? Thanks for the help.

    Wow! Isn’t he beautiful! I have a hand-sewing centre in my kindergarten classroom and it is SO popular…they all go around wearing tiny heart pillow necklaces (a simpler version of your Doxie, which, by the way, I’ll be making with my son this week as gifts for his sisters for Christmas!)
    I spent the morning helping my five year old machine sew your little house pillow for her little sister. WOW! What a simple and effective pattern…I’ll blog about it tomorrow if you want to check it out! :)

    Just purchased!! Thank you. We’re making Christmas stockings out of felt for all of my daughter’s dolls. This will make things much easier! :) Love your work too- i made two dolls last year from your book. So much fun. You’re tremendously talented and I love your blog!!
