The ornaments are under way. The first ones I’m working on, are the Wizard of Oz by Cheswick Company. Last year everyone was buying up the Alice ornaments like crazy and when I told them I was doing Wizard of Oz for this Christmas they got excited, so I hope the sales go as well.
Makes all the work worth while. These are the first ones.This year though, I won’t be making extras. I was doing that right up to a couple of days before Christmas, so not this time as much as I appreciate the enthusiasm I like to have some down time for a couple of weeks before the New Year hits and I start fresh with new projects.
I’m making three of each of the Wizard ornaments and each set of three will have slightly different colours to make it more interesting and personal for anyone considering buying them.T
he Cowardly Lion….
The Wizard…. a friend came and saw what I was working on, saw the pants and renamed the Wizard, Fancy Pants. The pattern actually called for felt circles stitched onto the pants, but with all the buttons in my stash I figured, no time like the present to make use of them. I thought the look was perfect and they really do look like a Fancy Pants/ AKA….Italian Wizards… Those moustaches kill me….lol
and of course, that nasty ole Wicked Witch. Various shades of green, but I think the lightest one looks the meanest… More pics soon.
