Easy and Quick Felt Holiday Refrigerator Magnets

Last week I was looking online for some free easy patterns to make felt holiday refrigerator magnets and tree ornaments. I needed a project that I could do with my 12 and 13 year old nieces that didn't take a lot of time.

I found this pattern over on the Joann's Fabric Site (crafts and fabrics) to make fabric holiday ornaments. We downloaded the free pdf project sheet and patterns and used the pattern/template to make some cute felt holiday refrigerator magnets. Since my nieces are not great (yet) at machine sewing, we did hand-sewing.

You can find the free printable patterns ---> HERE

You can use fabric and make them into holiday tree ornaments as called for in the instructions or you can trace the pattern onto felt like we did. We traced each one onto 2 pieces of scrap felt and hand-sewed them together with tiny straight stitches. We added some ribbon bows (on the dog and cat). We glued a 1 1/2" long piece of magnet strip on the back side of each one. To turn them into ornaments, just add a hanging string...simple as that :)
