The 2 ornaments shown are over 10 years old.
I made 100's of these for my children's Christmas Fairs at school and they have always been one of my favorites.
Cut stamped fabric into squares and sew to felt cut the sane size ~ right sides together ~ leaving enough of an opening to turn right side out.
Stuff with lavender or poly fill ~ or both.
Don't forget to add your cord when sewing or you can wait till the end and hot glue a cord to the back.
Cover the front in glue and generously sprinkle the clear glitter over fabric. It will dry clear.The finished size is about 3" by 2".
This would be so beautiful done with black felt, black stamp and a black checkered cord .....
or pink or .........
Right Click to super size and print recipe. I had better luck using 2 cups of flour instead of the 2 1/2 they call for.
I have made these every year since I have been married.
This is the original recipe card my Grama used to make them :)
A Heart warming gift ~ copy and print a family members favorite recipe on fabric with your ink jet printer.
Make pot holders with the fabric for kid's or grand kids. You could even use a piece of a tablecloth or fabric from the clothing of the loved one.
I copied this recipe from my Mom when I was 19 ~ just day's before I moved out and into my first apartment.
It is the PERFECT Holiday color ~ green, red and white!
So be a kid again and make this ~

1 cup (3oz) cream cheese
1 pint cream style cottage cheese
1 can (8 3/4 oz) crushed pineapple
Dissolve lemon-lime jello in 1 1/4 cups boiling water. Chill until slightly thick.
Place cherries in the bottom of a 13 x9 glass dish.
Cover with lemon - lime jello. Chill until firm.

I have been a fanatic about getting rid of excess holiday decor I don't use ~ and using what my heart makes me keep!
I have been decorating for the last 2 weeks and when I come across a glass bulb I am not using ~ I attach it to this tinsel wreath on my pantry door. (Tinsel wreath ~ $2.50 at Target last year)
It should be covered with assorted bulbs when decorating is done and I will have created a new heirloom ~ FREE!
I saw this lovely idea in the latest issue of HALLMARK magazine.
