Homemade ornaments

More sewing today, among other things. We ran errands all day yesterday, but first thing this morning the boy announced a serious interest in a second go at the sewing thing. As it would happen, a couple of years ago at the local fair he won a felt critter sewing kit. At the time he was too young to make good use of it so we put it away. Thankfully my memory was working well this morning, and I was able to find it.

Two hours, one blunt needle, lots and lots of thread and untangling later, and he's now the proud creator two off-color frogs (that I failed to photograph).

Then we returned to ornament sewing (or...orniment sewing, as it may be). He even drew up some instructions for those who might be interested. Or you might be interested in the instructions I used originally, an those can be found here (we altered them for the feathers—no ric-rac—and the penguin—no horns, plus I embroidered the date on the back).

Surreptitious owl...

Penguin in a tree? How can that be? No worries, he's good pals with the hippo...

His hand is a lot bigger than it was in 2007...
