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”???
