Memba THIS post?
I asked what you may think those cute circles would be turned into and no one guessed it :)
They were my first attempt at making some ornaments - no instructions, I just did them from scratch.
Well, ok the circle motif is not one I whipped up, I got the pattern from 150 Blocks to Knit and Crochet and then I just thought of good way on how I could turn them into an ornament.
I crocheted two circles together by using SC stitches along the edge with a different colour yarn. I left a small opening which allowed me to stuff the inside until the ornament was nice and fluffy.
The amount of stuffing really depends on how round/firm you want the ornament to be - I left it somewhat squishy so they could be used alternatively as a pin cushion.
I made a total of five ornaments as they were intended to be the Christmas gifts for my co-workers at the office. Every year they get something handmade from me and in addition to the ornaments they all got a bag of some scrummy homemade flapjacks
Naturally, Mr P and I had to do some serious quality control before those flapjacks were given the go-ahead to be packed up, ready for delivery.
I am happy to report that my co-workers loved their little surprise gift
