The first thing that I designed was my ornament. It was loosely based on the following tutorial. I altered the design slightly so that my ornament is made of felt, not foam and I also changed the eyes as the googly eyes that I had were too small for my ornament and looked silly. I also made the ears a bit cooler and just generally had fun personalising the design.

As it had been many years since I made them, it took a wee bit of experimenting with scraps of paper to get the design right, but I finally succeeded. If anyone is interested, I am more than happy to post a tutorial on how to make these.

I hope that everyone who received one of my packages gained as much joy from receiving them as I did from making them.
You can count me in again next year... this was FUN!!!
Curious as to what I receive in return?... Watch this space....
