Christmas ornament idea w/scrap yarn

I saw this [B]great idea[/B] for using up scrap yarn as ornaments and thought I’d share. Super fast, and cute too.

I think these would be a great idea for yarn shops, knitting groups, etc.

I found this pattern…and have been working on it for all my family/girl guides here

I got 10 of them out of a 50 gm ball of bernat or sugar n’ cream

Oh how cute, kind of like candy cane [I]stockings[/I]? I could see this is all kinds of colors, textures, etc.

Cute Ideas. Thanks for sharing. :thumbsup:

That’s frickin cool! I have clear ones I might have to do that!

Very cool!

Not knitting related, but clear ornament related… I took the top off a clear ornament and filled it with my cat Marshmallow’s fur. Then I painted a picture of a kitty on it that looks like her! It’s cute! I’ll take a picture when we get the ornaments out in a few days.

Aww, that is such a cute idea, Jan! With all my animals and the amount of fur around my house, I could make hundreds :teehee:

Not to sound morbid…but that will be a really nice keepsake to have one day when she is not around…

My dog passed away in 2006, and I have a small packet of her fur…it is a nice thing to remember them by…

Oh I agree! She’s 17½ now, too!

I’ve been making these too! I think they are so cute! I will be giving them to my daycare children for this years ornament. The only thing I don’t like is trying to sew on the ribbon!:gah:

I like to sew the ribbon and button on before I sew up the side seam…it makes it way easy…

In fact, in order…

I will knit all the sleeves I am going to be making in one go…

I leave the cast on/off threads at the bottom, and use the other side as the top…

After cutting my ribbons, I stitch them where they look like they should be

I position my buttons, and stitch them in place

I weave the cast on thread in so it isn’t showing, then I use the long cast off thread I have left to sew up the bottom, setting the bell about half way…

The last thing I do is sew up the sides with a fresh string, and shove in the candy cane…

Much easier then trying to sew things on in a cramped space…

Oh Geez - why didn’t I think of that?!:yay:
