Christmas in July with Island batik


This month’s theme is Christmas in July!

I started off with these yummy strips


Add a styrofoam ball and pins,DSCF6533

I started making an ornament following the pattern here by ornament girl

Make your own quilted ornaments.

Here’s the finished result!

I also added the canvas “ribbon” as my hanging ribbon


Then I got another idea inspired by pics on ornament girl’s facebook page, somehow she started with a square piece of fabric, so I tried these deer from the Holiday happenings collection


and here’s the end result of that!


The two ornaments together Smile



I’ve made two other ornaments before, one in spring batiks from island batik and one in scrap fabrics in black and white and grey.


If you want to try this pattern, it’s quite addictive and these batiks make gorgeous ornaments!
