Handmade Holiday: Quilted Ornaments

Happy Monday everyone!  Today we're kicking off our Handmade Holiday week!  We'll be sharing a quick and easy gift idea every day this week AND offering up a few giveaways along the way ... so be sure to comment and check back to see if you've won! :-)

To start off the week, we've got a few examples of quilted ball ornaments.  These ornaments are really easy to make and there are lots of great tutorials and videos available online for the instructions.  These were made by Jessica McQuaig, a customer and seasoned professional at making these beautiful ornaments.

This first ornament is made with Designer Beads in Red and Mist from our Free Spirit Fabrics. I love this color combination for the holidays, a little nontraditional, but very fun and modern!
And Jessica also made a few in several different Fandango fabric combinations.  This one is Sarabande Sand and Canto Ole. 
 The one below is in Sarabande Sand and Sarabande Ole.
 And finally, Sarabande Ole and Portico Sand Celadon.
Aren't they pretty!?  We've got two different Fandango Fat Quarter bundles and a Designer Beads bundle in the Custom Bundles section of the shop ... just add some Styrofoam balls and sequin pins and you'll be on your way!

Leave a comment on this post for a chance to win one of these beautiful Fandango ornaments!  Two winners will be chosen.  Comments must be made by 11:59 pm on Friday, December 10th.  Winners will be announced on Saturday, December 11th.
