Christmas ornaments???

In wasting time on the www this morning I was looking through Spoonflower's Flickr album and came across this astonishing example of what to do (or what not to do) with Spoonflower fabric.

More like Voodoo doll! 

Turns out there are a lot of sites which give instructions for making crafty tree ornaments.  Maybe some day when I turn into Martha Stewart I will remember to look for these bookmarks and do up my house (HA!). 

I don't like the excruciating how-to videos (skip the introductory ad - an AD on a craft video??).  However there are many tutorials out there. 

Sewing/crafting is a logical choice given the target audience for these (Country Stitcher's Ornament).  However I find them a bit "Becky Home-Ecky"...

Winter themes are also logical (Better Homes & Gardens).  These are particularly *cute*.

These paper snowflakes are quite lovely. 

If anyone is out there reading, I hope your holidays are happy and safe.  See you in 2010 (or maybe there will be another post before the end of the year, who knows?).


  1. I agree, all that you need to turn those first ornaments into good voodoo dolls is some real hair. Its kind of creepy.
    Have a merry Christmas yourself.

  2. I agree with becki-c. I actually thought they were voodoo dolls at first glance, Kay!

  3. Merry Christmas, Sewing Lawyer (and Husband and cute Son). BTW, the pocket matching on the trilobite shirt impressed the heck out of me - - did you use a microscope?! Husband & Son will, I'm sure, appreciate the very fine engineering that went into both these shirts.... See you in 2010!

  4. Those photo dolls could look really scary if the string was attached in the wrong spot.

  5. Those ornaments do look like voodoo dolls! Truly frightening!
