FO Friday: Stitchable Sweaters

A while back, I spotted these adorable sweater ornaments on Instagram and couldn't resist buying a bunch to stitch for holiday gifts. I'm not much of an embroiderer, but I managed to work through the stack, slowly but surely. And from the front, they look pretty lovely, right?

Well, looks can be deceiving - the back of each ornament is total spaghetti! I have a lot to learn about managing multiple colors of floss, apparently.

Luckily, a little bit of hot glue and some felt was all I needed to fix things up:

These were pretty much the only handmade holiday gifts I gave this year, if you can believe it. I think I'm going to make some more for next year!

Wishing you a safe & happy holiday this weekend, whatever you celebrate. Thanks for stopping by!
