Quick and Easy Christmas and Winter Cut and Sew Ornaments For Crafting Fun


A lot of crafters Christmas and winter due to all the wonderful decorations you can make.  Santa's, Mrs. Claus, angels, carolers, gingerbread-men, Christmas trees, snowmen, snow-ladies and snow covered trees.

So, when I was designing my Christmas and winter custom fabrics I decided to add 4 new cut and sew Christmas doll ornament groups and 3 new cut and sew winter doll ornament groups.  For the winter groups there are 37 different ornaments and for the winter groups there are 23 different ornaments.

If you don't know what cut and sew dolls are they are a great sewing tool for kids and a quick and easy ornament to make for decorations.  Plus, they're great ornaments to sell at local church fairs and craft shows.

Just think of all the fun you and your family can have making your Christmas and winter ornament decorations.  



One  fat quarter will make one ornament each of the 11 ornaments shown above.  If you purchase one yard of fabric that will make 4 ornaments each.  


There are two ways you can make your cut and sew Christmas and winter ornaments: Machine stitch (as shown in the picture at the beginning of this post) or blanket stitching around the edges ( as shown in the picture below.)
