    I've made a number of cross-stitched mini-stocking ornaments over the years. They're fun and fast to stitch. What great prices you've found on Amazon.

    Ah! Thanks for these ideas! I have the key chain mini templates--yes all 14 of them! sitting in a basket in my sewing room, I bought them in a moment of great weakness--yes shopping online will do that to you--and did not realize at the time there really aren't any patterns out there to use them for. I guess you have to make up your own patterns.

    Hi,

    I made some of these folded star ornaments this year. One example I saw had seed beads tacked on by hand and another had stitched around the edges to hold in place.

    They are made using by cutting out two pentagram shapes and sewing them right sides together leaving a space to turn them. Once you turn them right side out, push the corner out neatly and iron. If you choose to hand tack the points, you will need to slip stitch closed the gap you used for turning. If you are planning to sew along the edges, you just need to make sure the raw edges are folded in and ironed well. Them you mark the center of each side and draw a line each mark the next adjoining one. Fold the points in along these lines and your star will appear. Then all you have to do is stitch the points down and add a loop or hanger of your choice.

    You can make them bigger or smaller by varying the size of the pentagram. I adapted the pattern a little when making them with a couple of 10 year olds who are just learning to sew. We used a pentagram pattern that was about 6" wide and layered the fabric together right sides out. The girls sewed around the edges and then we pinked them. Once they had marked and folded them we used fabric glue to hold the points in place and added a ribbon loop. It was a fun way for them to practice sewing straight lines and turning corners as well as using a pinking shears and went together quickly enough that they both made several as gifts.

    I had the 12 days of Christmas in cross stitch and since I used 2 sided frames, I backed them with quilt patterns.

    I still have patterns for some stuffed critters that are small, and one year made swan ornaments out or eyelet backed with red or green. They had pets and farmyard critters that were sized to fit on wreaths,

    I also did the boots, but added a blade and turned them into ice skates.

    I also had a bought kit of cross stitch kittens peeping out of stockings. I might drag out the pattern for size and with all the new iron on markers, fabric and other embellishment, draw my own and make the stockings out of fabric.
