Charming Ornaments to Keep or Give

You Can Never Have Too Many Christmas Ornaments!
Bringing out the tree ornaments is part of what makes the holidays special at our house every year. Each has a tale to tell and it’s a treasured part of getting ready for Christmas to reminisce while rediscovering each ornament and placing it on the tree.
While there any many styles of ornaments in our collection, the ones that mean that most were often handmade. They remind us lovingly of the people who made them, some of whom are now gone. It’s a joy to revisit our memories of these special people every Christmas.
Part of the tradition is to make new ornaments ourselves every year. Some we add to the tree, many we use to decorate wrapped gifts, and others are given with a card, baked good or other small gift.
That’s why we were delighted to discover Annie’s special Christmas issue. It consists entirely of ornaments. Some are sewn or quilted while others are crocheted or knitted. It’s a lovely collection of patterns to draw from and it’s inexpensive.
All of the ornaments are fun, easy projects that you can have finished up quickly.
You may already have fabric in your stash to work from. Add buttons and other embellishments are you prefer.
We’ve included the fabric ornaments here for you to enjoy. Click through to the publication to see those made with yarn, felt and embroidery.
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!
