"Tis' The Season To Hop" *Day #2*

Hello and welcome to day #2 of 
"Tis' The Season to Hop"
If your coming over to this hop for the first time, 
head over to the beginning in the previous post all the 
details are over there.

Today's project, fabric Ornaments! 
I decided to use fabrics because I love sewing, I only wish I could do more!! But anyhow, I cut out 4" circles using their circles die by Spellbinders and made some ornaments to hang!

I love different textured fabrics, so I used burlap, canvas, felt, cotton and batting for a "stuffed" ornament! :)

Here are the "Traditional and Rustic" ornaments...
These are the beautiful "Shabby Chic Ornaments"
(tutorial in my video below!)
I think these Shabby ones can be somehow incorporated 
in a wedding!! The colors are a classy elegant, love these! 
That's tree next year will be a 
"Shabby Chic" theme...oooh, I can't wait!!

If I don't carry the supplies I used, I wanna help you find them!!:)
