From Sketch to Sample – Christmas Tree Ornament #2

In this installment, I’ll be making another ornament design, fashioned after my Christmas Forest stocking design.

Well, I think this is another sample worth developing. I like how it turned out.

I did not enjoy working with such tiny pieces of fabric and tiny buttons so I might offer the ornaments this year in my shop then develop patterns next year.

What do you think?
