Sweater Christmas Ornaments

I hope all of you had a nice Thanksgiving.  Mine was filled with lots of loved ones and food! 

In addition to making the keepsake stockings, (you can read about them here) I also made Christmas Ornaments using one of my Mom’s sweaters.

Each ornament has buttons  from my Mom’s sewing box.

On Thanksgiving Day I gave the ornaments to  Mom’s grandchildren and the keepsake stockings to my brother and sister. From now on, my Mom will remain a part of everyone’s Christmas. 

Blessings,

Gail

  4. I loved the keepsake stockings when you posted those and I love these little ornaments too. Your mother will be remembered every time her children and grandchildren look at the keepsakes you made.

  9. This is wonderful! Love the ornaments but the fact that you used your mom's sweater is fabulous. This would be such a great keepsake! I would die to have an ornament made from a sweater that my grandmother's once wore :D

    Thank you for linking up to the party! You're the best!!!
