Felt ornament inspiration

Pinterest has again sparked my interest in making Christmas ornaments with the kids this year. Have you seen all the fabulous inspiration there? I've got a Christmas board going and it makes me want to take a few days off of the rest of life and make some ornaments with the girls.

I actually made one like this.

 

Super easy. The problem was I made it out of craft felt (off the bolt at JoAnn's). It's not that sturdy and looks rather unimpressive.

When I have a question google can't answer I ask on twitter, naturally. So last week I asked where you all buy your felt. Not many answers but a lot of people saying "I want to know too!" Dana from MADE posted where she got her felt but I tend to disagree. JoAnn Fabrics never has a good selection of wool blend felt where I live. They have some burgandy, mustard and a few greens but not much else. Tons of accrylic felt but I was looking for something a little nicer.

So I turned to Etsy. Of course. Oh my the colors you can find when you type "wool felt" into the search box! 

Look what already came in the mail!!

Thanks so much Felt Flavors! Amazing service and a little extra felt too! Now I can make these!

 

Oh, and how cute are these? The kids would love making these!!

So, where do you buy your felt? And will you be making ornaments this year?

    I have been wondering about felt too! Hancock’s is the only fabric store near me (booooo hissss) and their felt is terrible! Keep me posted on what you find out! I want to make felt flowers. And those little men ornaments! so cute!

    I LOVE felt. I buy mine at a local wool shop and a couple other fabric boutiques close by. I will be making ornaments this year. I have a goal of making each of my kids a new ornament each year. Then when they’re grown and leave the house they’ll have enough ornaments to get their own tree started :).
    Thank you for stopping by my blog! I’d love to see how your “Super Eddie” turns out :). Leave me a link to check it out if you have time. Have a beautiful day!
