      These are great instructions, but once again the pdf file does not open and cannot be saved! There are quite a lot like this.

      These are very cute! great for adluts as well as kids. I will put them at each place setting for the xmas lunchen at my sewing group.

    3. Susan L-A says:

      Thank you so much for posting the instructions. I love these and have made several already. Thank you again.

    4. Carol Van Sickle says:

      I have been doing a very large Gift Card sized buttonhole on the back half wherever wide enough before attaching the two halves so it can be a gift card holder and ornament. I do the small buttonholes just on the front half early so that they are not on the back of the ornament and the candy cane only shows up on the front. Really cute ornaments. Thank you DBS.

    5. Amanda Simmons says:

      I adore these! I am making them as part of the Christmas gifts for all the kids in the family.
