Charming Ornaments Made from Scraps

Wire Gives Them a Special Touch of Whimsy!
Fabric scraps, buttons and plastic coated wire combine in these charming holiday ornaments. Hang them on your tree or use them to give any gift a special touch.
Santa is, of course, perfect for the holidays. The star, however, can be used throughout the year. We can easily imagine several as part of a nursery’s decor.
Both ornaments begin with simple piecing that is cut to shape. The star is given dimension with batting while Santa is lightly stuffed.
The finished ornaments, designed by Chris Malone, are 4″ x 6 1/2″ (Santa) and 5″ x 5″ (star), not including the wire.
You’ll find the patterns for the “Whimsy Wire Ornaments” in A Quilted Christmas.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
