Handmade ornament exchange 2013

Hi friends! Today I am sharing the ornaments that I made for our Handmade Ornaments 2013 Exchange!

The swap was organized by the lovely Christen of Love By Hand and we had five people to make handmade ornaments for.

As soon as I saw this I knew I had to sign up for it and I had just purchased the perfect pattern the day before - Kitschy Christmas Baubles by Wild Olive.

I chose 5 of the 10 patterns in the set and decided to sew on a backing, which I need some practice on. Some of the edges were a little wobbly, so if making these I would recommend keeping them in the hoop (which would be adorable) or use pinking shears to trim, sew around and leave a raw edge.

Be sure and stop by Mollies blog and shop - Wild Olive! I am so in love with all of her adorable patterns and am looking forward to working on some Valentine's embroidery here this next month.
