  1. I love making FSL ornaments for myself, family and friends. I have made icicles, ornament covers, hot air balloons, and various figures such as Santa’s face & bears. While I have hand crocheted snowflakes and ornament covers, using the sewing machine is much easier!

  2. I made several of the Danish stars from fabric last year to gift to my quilting friends.I usually make some type of ornament to gift , but it is not always made from fabric.
    This year I am doing a clay ornament.

  3. I’ve made those Danish stars in the past and taught several members of my small quilt group to make them also. They look so great on the tree especially if you pick out the right fabrics. But one year in the recent past I made felt snow flake ornaments for each member of my group and that was definitely fun and a surprise for them.

  4. I think this week’s ideas are cute for decorating a tree and I may like to try the Holly Leaves. AND I particularly like the idea of hanging them on a wine bottle. They would be an adorable adornment to a gift bag too. Very cute. While I do have an embroidery option on my machine, I may take this opportunity to explore the sewing variety.
    Thanks for a wonderful blog, as always.

  5. Stocking ornaments! The small stockings work for candy and cash, stout ones for gift cards. They can be re-gifted or used for decoration for many years to come.

  6. My favorite tree trimming project is likely making gingerbread or cinnamon cookies for the tree. I have been considering making felt embroideries, now that my kids are getting to busy to find the time to bake with me.

  7. I love WeAllSew tutorials! My favorite Tree-trimming decorations to sew are the FSL Enchanted Ornaments from OESD! The make wonderful gifts and I attach a metal 2019 metal charm to them!!💜

  8. I can’t wait to make the 3-D holly leaf ornament. I have a daughter names Holly and use a lot of holly in my Christmas decorations. I’ll make some for her and her sister, as well.

  9. Felt Ornaments with trim on hooks. I made a bunch of them when I was first marrried and gave them away on our trip to Chili.They were fun to make and fun to give away.

  10. Our family is celebrating 2 new arrivals this year. One little “Sugar Plum” is already here and the “Little Elf” is due any day!! Their very own little stocking ornament is the most joyous thing I can think of to sew up quickly to put on the tree until it’s time to pass it on!

  11. Christmas is my very favorite holiday. I shamefully start decorating around Thanksgiving. I really like DYI mini tree skirts as I live in an RV. Small scale decorating can be fun!

  12. I enjoy sewing all types of ornaments whether it be fiber art or embroidered! I would like to try some of the quilted ornaments and the Danish star. thanks for sharing all of these great ideas : )

  13. One of my favorite projects is to make differnt ornaments to hang on the tree – this past year, I made 2 special one’s for my parents that have passed away

  14. I love making ornaments! Each year I make an ornament as a gift for family members and co-workers. Last year I made paper piece santa triangles. This year is origami squares made from holiday fabrics. Also love freestanding lace ornaments 😍🎄😍

  15. I love to make ITH ornaments and christmas decorations and made a lot of ITH GIFTS FOR STOCKINGS THIS YEAR. LOVE THIS SITE AND SO MANY FUN IDEAS AND SO MUCH HELP. THANKS.

  16. My favorite tree trimming projects are in-the-hoop candy cane holders. They look nice on the tree and all the kiddos that come by leave here with something. I was surprised a few years back when I visited a friend. Her tree was covered with my candy cane holders!

  17. I love making new ornaments to match the color/theme of the decorations, or to match the particular interest of the recipient. Thanks for all the great ideas!

  18. I’m had the best time making Christmas cards out it scraps of fabric. Cutting squares and folding into triangles. The shapes are then glued down to make a tree. My grand daughter loved it too.

  19. My favorite tree trimming project to sew is FSL ornaments. I love using my embroidery machine to help in the project. But I especially love to share with my friends my handcrafted ornaments and have several I have received over the years from my friends that I cherish.

  20. I like the little folded fabric ornaments the best–I made one with a decorative button in the center that was fun to make–I like your Danish Star–may have to try that next!

  21. It’s not exactly trimming the tree, but they set below it! I love to make fabric gift bags with pretty bows to replace the paper gift wrap. Eventually, I will have no more paper to use and all of my holiday gift bags will be reusable and so pretty beneath the tree!

  22. My favorite tree trimming project is the 3-dimensional Holley Leaf Ornaments. Another fun project I have done in the past is sewing icicles using clear vinyl, filled with pearlescent shredded film.
