We’re Making Prairie Point Ornaments
Sometime before Christmas I stumbled on another blogger making some ornaments. Unfortunately, I do not recall who that was but they really drew me in. Not enough to throw caution to the wind and start mass producing ornaments for last year. However, I knew we would be making quite a few for 2019! I shared the Prairie Point Ornament tutorial with Sue, who jumped on board.
Prairie Point Vision
We envisioned a Christmas tree filled with ornaments. Not just any ornaments but with an NFL-theme. Originally, we thought Sue’s nephew, William, would be all on board for a tree like this. He informed us he wasn’t even having a Christmas tree! That changed drastically when he got married though. HAHA! Of yes, he now has TWO trees. Anyway, the Indianapolis Colt traditional ornament I received led the charge for this whole project. Soon, this project evolved into making these ornaments for Dominic.
We pretty much followed the pattern for the first attempt. The ability to be able to use a charm pack is appealing. However, NFL football fabric isn’t readily available in charm packs. I ordered a whole bunch of different teams when I ordered the Dr. Seuss fabrics. Here is our nearly completed ornament, just waiting for a cord hanger and the center button to hide all the fabric ends. We found these cute football buttons but some are a bit small. We thought about using twine for the hanger but it unravels and frays so easily that we’re going for a snazzier look.
You can see the cute baseball buttons, too. Those are for the Brewers and Cubs fabric that might have slipped into my checkout cart. Maybe.
