My favorite swap every year is the Trim the Tree Handmade Ornament Swap. I've been working on some prototypes.
This ornament comes from this Danish blog tutorial from Sofie Legarth. It ended up a little thick from all of the folded fabric and a bit floppy. I think it would work a lot better with pretty paper and a bone folder.
I adore this knitted glove, but even with my love for tiny knitted things, I can't tolerate making four more of these. My wrists ache just thinking about it.
So, I'm going to knit tiny mittens instead. Both the glove and the mitten are from the Mini-Me pattern by Julia Mueller on ravelry.
I absolutely adore handmade ornaments. Do you have any favorite tutorials or examples to recommend. I'd love to see them.
