Pretty for Packages or Trees

I thought you all might enjoy a little "fabric therapy" this season.
When you need to stop and take a breath--here are a few very easy and fun ideas for ornaments you can make!
Minimal Machine Sewing--Most of these can be finished up while watching a favorite holiday movie!
Just click each picture to jump over to the tutorial !

Tutorial by Katrina
Also a video for the folded fabric ornaments above
 by Crouton Crackerjacks
Can it get any easier than this cutie???!!!
Wouldn't these be great with 2 coordinating fabrics?
The Tutorial says "styrofoam balls"
but why not cover old ugly shatterproof balls 
that you were going to toss?

 The last 2 ARE Easy but maybe not quite as quick--
Christmas Angel
at Selimut-ku
Very Sweet!

(I had to include this classic!)

Many Tutorials for this one  but...
I chose this site because they linked to a good video.
