old fashion toy ornament
When my son was a wee boy,
many winters ago,
I was concerned, as most moms of young children,
of the danger of Christmas ornaments.
And my solution, like many other moms,
was to make soft, unbreakable ornaments.
We do not need them anymore,
so we usually used them in a wreath:
These 6 ornaments are paper pieced little patchworks
of old fashion boy toys:
a topper a sail boat
a horse a train
an airplane a boat
These ornaments were the first paper piecing I did,
and as you have seen before not the last!
I know, I just think it makes everything easier!
The pattern is "toy box ornaments" from Sweet peas, Inc.
by Kim Halvorson.
I looked around for some web address or info
but this company seems to be gone.
The pattern was publised in 1998.
