More Felt Ornamenting

No denying it.  I am fully immursed in Christmas crafting.  And our tree is hopefully going up this weekend.

Alicia's Ice-Skating Afternoon ornament set was her first collection in 2008 but I didn't discover Posie Gets Cozy until February 2010.  When I first saw this set I went straight to her shop and I remember my heart sinking when I read they were SOLD OUT.  To say I was bummed out is an understatement.

But when she re-released them as both a kit AND a PDF the following year ... and every year since! - my world went back to normal.

So.  Here's the mug in progress.  Not much ... just the pieces cut out.  But I think I'm going to deviate from the embroidery floss colors - less red & olive, more pink & aqua.

Have a great weekend ... perhaps making some tags?

I hope you are making two of each ornament.....or someday there is going to be a big struggle divvying up Mom's ornaments. Just sayin' Kristy

Just wondering what kind of felt you buy and where do you buy it? I'm just lovin' all of the things you can do with felt, but can only find the little paper sized pieces at Michael's and the felt by the metre at Fabricland. These felts are 100% polyester and don't really look that great, but the felt you use looks different... perhaps a better quality? Do you buy it by the metre or in paper sized pieces?

Thanks for answering my questions.
