November 27, 2012Countdown to Kitschmas – Felt Mobile Ornaments!
by Betty Crafter
This week I revisit an old favorite, McCalls Christmas crafts in felt.
You may remember me drooling over several projects in this magazine last year in this post. Since everyone in Casa Crafter has been battling the plague for about 3 weeks now I didn’t have the stamina for anything too ambitious, but these adorable felt mobile ornaments were just what the doctor ordered!
It was hard to choose just one since there are so many cute ones, but the obvious starting point for me was the partridge in a pear tree.
Cutting out 2 each of all the tiny pieces was pretty fiddly and time consuming, but I had good company. Little Betty joined me in making some felt ornaments of her own! Plus we ended up singing several rounds of “The 12 Days of Christmas” after trying to explain to Little Betty why the heck a partridge in a pear tree belonged on our Christmas tree.
After all the cutting, the assembling took no time and now we have a sweet partridge in a pear tree for our Christmas tree!
I pretty much love it. Little Betty already made me promise that we could make the snowman tomorrow and I also want to make a few more so there will definitely be more felt mobile ornaments on our tree this year!
