Part 18: Fabricoholic Ornament

hanging on the tree
I know this doesn't look like a holiday ornament to most. But to those of us who hoard fabric, any fabric item is a good excuse to go buy fabric (all though this fabric is real, real old and pulled from my stash, and also a real small piece; still fun). Also, this is a reminder to Santa of what to put under our trees: more supplies for crafts.

On a side note, if you make a mini-doll house, this would work for that as well.
I was also given the idea from a reader on flicker (after she saw my post) that you could make these to keep an idea of your fabric stash a sort of mini library.

  • stiff paper or thin cardboard (like what rick rack comes on) size 1 inch by 2 inches
  • fabric 1 3/4 inches tall, however long you want it, with tiny, tiny holiday print on it
  • glue dots
  • embroidery thread
  • needle at least 3 inches long
  • scissors

Order of events:
  1. Cut boards 1 inch by 2 inches.
  2. Cut fabric by 1 3/4 inches by what ever length you decide.
  3. Place glue dots on board and attach fabric.
  4. Wrap fabric, fold end of fabric, place glue dots and press hard.
  5. Thread long needle with embroidery thread.
  6. Slide one strand of thread under fabric; tie knot at end.
  7. Form another knot before closing down all the way; put needle inside knot and slide it into position. Pull out needle; done.



  1. Of all your ornaments so far, this one is my fave!

  2. What a cute idea! I do have one in miniature form for my dollhouse and love the idea of using it as a stash or project little reminder.

  3. How cute! Great Idea for little present to quilty friends.

  4. What a great idea to use this as an ornament and also for samples of our fabric stash!
    You are definitely a woman who works willingly with her hands as it says in Proverbs.
    Love all of these beautiful ornaments Sunshine, thanks for sharing them with us.

  5. oh this is so cute, I just think it is a wonderful idea to stick in with a gift.

  6. This is the cutest yet.... I MUST make some for myself!! Doesn't look like it'll happen before Christmas, but hopefully before next year.
