I’ve been dreaming of making Silas his very own felt Christmas tree that he can play with and arrange ornaments on. Hopefully it’ll give him a constructive way to stay involved without going after the real tree (yeah, keep dreaming lady). Thank goodness for Free Felt Patterns for Christmas Ornaments!
I made my first foray in making felt ornaments for the tree this past weekend. They turned out pretty well all things considered. My biggest frustration was my inability to use my google-fu to find decent patterns for the ornaments. I winged two of them and while they aren’t bad per se, they aren’t totally what I wanted either.
Thankfully I’m super blessed and my friend Laura came to my rescue. She quickly designed this Free Felt Patterns for Christmas Ornaments, which you can click to open here. It’s designed to print off easily at 100% so you don’t need to fiddle with it in order to get a usable pattern. The pdf contains a candy cane, a mitten, a gingerbread man, a stocking, christmas lights, and two ornaments.
I’ve been making my ornaments one sided as they’re meant to stick to a felt Christmas tree for a child to play with. They could just as easily be made to be two sided (cut out a second main shape) and then blanket stitched together with a little ribbon sandwiched in there to hang on a real tree.
