In Craft Tutorials, Felt Tutorial, Holiday & Seasonal

Ok, I’m trying to get in the spirit here and make a few Christmas ornaments. Ever since I got a stash of felt balls, I’ve been wanting to make a little pea pod for the green ones.

No elaborate tutorial for you this time, this one’s easy: Three felt balls, string together like a little snowman. Cut a felt scrap (I used a felted sweater) for the pod. It’s basically the shape of an elipse with points. Wrap up the “snowman” like a pig in a blanket and whip stitch between the peas. Add a bow and a loop and you’re done!

I know, peas are not really what you think of at Christmas time. Kind of an odd ornament. But how else could I use the phrase, “PEAS on earth, Good WOOL towards men”???

    adorable!

  • Tink

    Oh my!! I just love that. Too cute!

    Question if you don’t mind…where do you purchase your felt balls? I have made my own, but I just don’t have the skill/patience to make a bunch the same size. I was curious.

    Oh, so so cute!! Love the puns, too. And, like Tink, I’d love to know where to purchase felt balls too.

    These I got at a shop in Mnpls. More recently I bought some online at http://www.ornamentea.com. I’m on the lookout for other good places to buy felt balls, so if anyone knows of some, let me know!

    groan! Actually – bonus points for the punniness.

    Perhaps peas are not a traditional Christmas decoration, but I was actually just looking for a pea-in-the-pod, bun-in-the-oven type ornament for an expectant mom.

    I think I’ll be making my own from now on. Too cute!

    lol I love your statement! Peas on Earth indeed, it’s so much fun to have unique ornaments, have fun with them.

  • janet

    Oh, I don’t know about that – I’ve seen lots of veggie-shaped glass ornaments in catalogs. I think I even have some tomatoes somewhere. I think your peas are really cute!

    I have a bunch of round vintage green buttons that look just like peas and you’ve inspired me to make some fabric pods to hold them. I feel a pillow design coming on :)

    PEAS on Earth – too cute for a holiday card. Between your felted peas and Susan B. Anderson’s knitted ones – I see a theme forming!:) Excellent!
