Island Batik’s Winter Wonderland

Welcome to Island Batik‘s Winter Wonderland!

This month, we Island Batik Ambassadors were given it as our theme. Of course, Winter Wonderland conjures up many images. First, for me, is one of snow covering the ground and tree branches laced with the fluffy flakes and evergreens dressed in their beautiful best. Snowmen too, of course! However, winter and Christmas always go together for me, so although we already had Christmas in July, Christmas is what came immediately to mind for me.

Island Batik Ambassador, Nan Baker of Purrfect Spots, and I were talking about, and looking at, Christmas decorations when I spotted one I’ve wanted to make for  years, but just never did get around to doing – Folded Fabric Ornaments.  Perfect, I thought, for my Winter Wonderland assignment! I have finished 5 of them and have 4 more partially made. Here are the finished ones. I must say that I love them. They quickly become addictive! They are very pretty in Island Batik‘s Winter Collections. I used the option of sewing some special buttons to their centers – a snowflake, a heart, an evergreen, etc. Here are some photos and if you scroll all the way down, you will find a video instruction on how to make them.

Here is another ornament – a lovely Cathedral Window Ornament by Jane Lay.
I added a button to it, too. As you can see, it’s a little evergreen tree.
You will find the pattern in the December 2012 issue of
The Quilt Pattern Magazine (TQPM) where you can purchase it as a back copy.

  1. Fabulous!

    I love these folded fabric ornaments. Its a nice change to make something different from our quilts and small enough to do several. Yes, addicting and also great for scraps. I especially like the light blue one.

    • Thank you very much, Midge! – We must be kindred spirits as I like the blue one best, too!
      They are fun to make and I especially like finding cute buttons to add. 🙂

  3. What lovely ornaments. I have wanted to make these, too.
    Also, people can visit my Winter Wonderland blog here:

    • Thank you, Nancy. I’m sure you’ll enjoy making them as much as I have. – Please accept my apologies for inadvertently having left you off my list of Ambassadors! So sorry! – Thank you for letting me know! I’ve rectified it. You are listed now. 🙂
