Handmade Ornaments

every year I make ornaments for my Nieces and Nephews and Great Nieces and Nephews. This year that meant 17!  I made 14 stars and 3 birds (for those who got stars last year) scroll down for info on the patterns for them.
Peppermint stars! they are so cute!  I will be wrapping them in white tissue paper and putting little white tags with star mints on them and the recipients name. I got the pattern from the Allsorts blog. You have plenty of time to make some of these cuties while watching Christmas movies!

and I made 3 adorable little birdies.  I am in love with them.  I got the pattern in the book
"Last Minute Patchwork + quilted gifts" by Joelle Hoverson.   Check out the authors blog as well  - The Purl Bee


  1. Your ornaments look great! I love that pattern on allsorts, and the book is one of my very favourites. Aren't the pictures in it just gorgeous?

  2. Those ornaments are adorable. The favorite ornaments of my daughters, who are now in their late 30's are the ones my mother and my sister made for them when thy were little girls, and they are always placed at the best place on their trees. Your nieces and nephews will always cherish them.
