Happy Howlidays! Every year I add to my ornament collection. This year I decided to try to sew some felt dog ornaments, and as you might guess, it was very easy! Thanks to my sister, Alice G Patterson for the photos!
I enlisted two of my sisters to help, and we had a great time talking and stitching, even though sewing is not my forte!
Supplies For Felt Dog Ornaments
cookie cutter (or another template)
paper and pen
needle and thread
hooks, string or wire for hanging
Possibly the most fun part of the project is choosing your template. I picked these simple cookie cutters up at the grocery store, but then later found some amazing cookie cutters on Etsy.
Trace template on to paper
Cut out paper pattern
Pin pattern to fabric
Cut out 2 pieces for each ornament
Cut out ears in contrasting color
Stich closed except for a small opening
I think this would look cute on a tree or a wrapped gift. We decided to personalize our store bought wreath by adding the felt dogs, dog treats and some ribbons and glass balls.
I hung my wreath on the front door. My dogs would be going crazy trying to get the treats if the wreath was inside.
Maybe the delivery people from UPS, Fed Ex and the post office wondered about this dog themed wreath, but if they’ve ever looked at the packages and mail they deliver, they would have realized this house has already gone to the dogs!
