VTT - Fabric Christmas Ornaments

I love these vintage fabric covered Christmas Ornaments.

I keep them out all year long. Being a fabric junkie what would you expect!


I've picked these up at 3 different antique stores, and am amazed at how similar they are - all have the same little felt flowers, and glass seed beads that the pins go into. I wonder if they were made from some sort of a vintage "craft kit", or they came premade. I find it hard to believe that one person made all of these, and they ended up in 3 different antique stores in 2 different citys years later.

These are lovely! Are they on some sort of styrofoam base?

Those may well be my favorite thing ever featured on VTT! They're amazing! I really want to make a modern version now.

These are soooooo cute! I love old quilts, and this is what these remind me of. I would like to have a bowl of these too. Lovely.

I just saw your post linked on Tip Nut and had to check out your ornaments. I remember seeing ornaments like this with the felt flowers in a magazine awhile ago and I've always wanted to make them. Yours are really pretty!
