One of the stuffed toy soldier ornaments.
I'm going to embellish them more during the year, but they did nicely this year.

Pre-printed gingerbread-look teddy bears. Not my design, but I wanted to post them so the picture of our tree(s) will be more complete. I just sewed these together, and put sequins on them. Not everything on the trees were made by me, or even handmade; but the effect is always friendly and 'homey'.

Fabric yoyos tied into rings to form wreath ornaments.
Yoyos are two-inch fabric circles; run a line of loose stitching around the outside, and then pull the stitches to close them into a one-inch ball.
These have a little batting in them to make them puffy. They are strung in 8 to 11 ball strings, and then the ends are joined to make wreaths for Christmas tree ornaments.
