I don’t yet have my tree… Nope… Everyone but meeeee…. Bitter? Just a smidge. You see, I love Christmas Trees. Last year my Christmas was cut short by the Cow Disaster of 2010. This year I really wanted to enjoy Christmas, let it linger. But… no tree for me. Not until this Sunday (if I’m lucky). But! Enough whining. Today’s ornament:
Prairie Point Snowflakes
To start you need 5 squares of fabric. I made mine from 4 inch squares but I think they were too big, I’ll try 3 inch ones next time. You will also need a needle, thread, a felt circle and a button.
Make a chain of prairie points
Fold in half on the diagonal
Fold again so the raw edges are all along one side
Make the chain by tucking the folded side into the ‘pocket’ of the next point
After you connect all five points this way, tuck the start point into the end.
Pull it snug
Sew a felt disk onto the back. Flip it over and sew a button or other decoration on to cover the rough looking part.
