Vintage Sewing Christmas Ornaments!

A while back I saw a beautiful Christmas wreath made out of vintage sewing notions and it got me to thinking......If you can make an awesome wreath with vintage buttons and pattern paper, why not a chic sewing ornament?  I've been sewing my entire life and I definitely had the stuff for it!  Also, a while back my friend Margot sent me some vintage patterns that she picked up at a thrift store so I had everything I needed.  You can grab patterns for 10 cents at some places!  Just look around.  I'm also sharing some vintage pattern images for you to download and print if you can't find any right away!  Remember to celebrate the holidays, recycle thrift store items and always 
Make Your Mark!
So fun to make!


Watch how to make them here!
STUFF I USED
Clear ornaments
Vintage patterns (thrift store)
Vintage Pattern Illustrations
