There is nothing nicer than decorating your Christmas tree with homemade Christmas ornaments. Recently my friend had to plan a lesson to teach a group of primary school aged children some basic sewing skills. She borrowed my Accuquilt Go! Baby Cutter to cut out a heap of felt circles that she could use to make some easy felt ornaments with the girls. I haven’t yet seen their finished work – I can’t wait to see what the girls came up with!
My take on the project was to combine some felt circles, hand dyed doilies, and buttons. These were a fun project to do in front of the TV and would be great project to teach children some basic embroidery stitches, hand sewing, and button sewing skills.
I cut out some 3 inch circles using the circle die on the Go! Baby
added some doilies and buttons, and cut a felt tab.
Finished them off with some embroidery and a bakers twine hanging loop.
Quick, easy and perfect for a beginning sewing project! The Accuquilt Go! Baby makes it easy to cut out lots of circles for a group project.
