Holly berry puffy felt holiday ornament

Holly berry felt stuffed holiday ornament

This week I'm part of a Handmade Holiday Blog Hop with the Designer Crafts Connection that's sponsored by Fairfield World, makers of Poly-fil fiberfill. The timing is perfect, because I need to make a big batch of ornaments to sell at a holiday art and craft festival at a local gallery. And because I'm all about crafting with my stash, I decided to dig into my supply of yummy wool felt.

I love the classic holly berry motif, so I cut up my felt, got out my embroidery floss and started stitching. Poly-fil has a really nice slick texture, so it was super easy to stuff inside my ornament and shift around as needed to get just the right amount of puff.

Be sure to visit all the other participating designers in this hop to see what they made with their favorite Fairfield products!
