A few weeks ago I took a beginner's sewing class and have been wanting to create simple projects with my new sewing skills. I decided to make felt monogram ornaments last week for my family members and I'm really happy with how they turned out. I loosely followed these instructions here and deviated somewhat by hand cutting the letters, adding a ribbon stripe, and doing a blanket stitch around the outer edge of the ornament. The ornaments I made are definitely not perfect--I didn't use matching thread or center the letters perfectly, but I had fun making them and my family enjoys them too. I hope to continue the tradition and make more ornaments for my family next year.
