We set up our Christmas tree a couple days ago, and as a final touch, we hung our Teddy Ornaments that we made last year! I can’t believe it’s been one whole year since we designed, created and blogged about these three cuties, and it amazes me how popular they’ve become! This year is extra special since it is Myla’s first Christmas :) She watched with great interest as we were setting up the tree!
I thought I would do a round-up of some beautiful crocheted Christmas ornaments that I found in case you want to add some more crafty and crocheted goodness to your tree! The free patterns are available for all of these ornaments (click through the links to access them!)!
I think the baby owls are absolutely adorable! I’ve always greatly admired my friend Josephine Wu’s work as she is a very talented amigurumi designer. If you haven’t seen her work already, go check out her blog “A Morning Cup of Jo Creations”. I also think the “Scalloped Circle" would make a lovely frame for a picture or for another ornament as well- could you see a little snowman or angel in that circle?
Will you be making any of these ornaments to add to your tree in the last days before Christmas?
Thank you so much for all your support and warm wishes in response to our exciting news, everyone :) Ryan and I feel incredibly blessed and loved by you all!
I wanted to share these pics I snapped on my iPhone while vacationing in Tokyo! I was excited to see these cute little amigurumi teddies holding crochet letters on the very first day while exploring Ginza! It’s such a great idea to personalize your teddies, especially for gifts. They also had crochet letters and hearts attached to scrunchies for you to wear in your hair!
The next day I found these beautiful necklaces in a jewelry store in Harajuku. I love the incorporation of crochet into jewelry by crocheting around beads and hoops to add some wonderful texture. I just might have to try this out in the future!
Mes amis atop my shelf (not including the ones I gave away as gifts of course!). Have a great long weekend, everyone! May we remember the love, joy, hope, and victory that Easter represents :)
