fabric Christmas ornaments tutorials

Ornaments are one of my favorite things to make! They’re quick and satisfying, often use up scraps from larger projects, and make great gifts. It’s easy to store a bunch of them in a tote, too, so they don’t take up much space! I have a bunch of fresh new prints to use this year, so I thought I’d share the list of fabric Christmas ornaments tutorials that I’m considering as I work on Christmas crafts!
