Give me a C!

I made these initial ornaments last week for some little ones attending a party. These are easy peasy. No really, with minimal skill. I think they would be great as gift tags too. You could put a sticker on the back with to/from or if you have time, stitch it. 

Totally inspired by this ... totally!

Homemade by Jill made this amazing advent calendar with ornaments. As soon as I saw her name ornaments, I knew I had to make some. I will still try her design but I didn't have time to stitch names so modified my ornaments to one initial. 

Basic idea: Cut two circles out of felt, about 2 inch diameter. I drew a third circle on contrasting felt, then drew the initial inside freehand so I knew it would fit. Attach initial to one felt circle using whatever stitch you want. Then blanket stitch the two felt circles together. I didn't pull one of the stitches tight to make the loop, and then continued stitching but I'm sure there is a better way to make the hanger.

*Folks with real snow would laugh at our pitiful flakes. But we'll take what we can get.
