EDITED: I've written up some instructions for making this woven heart ornament. You can find them HERE.

I love homemade ornaments, and I've wanted to make some new ones for my tree for a few years now. I also needed to make two ornaments for a swap I'm doing at Christmas. So today I finally decided what to make. I didn't have a pattern...only a picture. After a couple of attempts at making up a pattern that was the right size, I ended up with this. It's wool felt on the front and cotton on the back. I put a layer of fusible between them to keep it all together. Then I did the blanket stitch and added the hanger and that was that! This is my prototype which I'll keep, so I still have to make at least two more. And Emily has asked for one in her school colors of purple and gray. I can't wait to see how that comes out. :0)
