skates

Since the box of felt was out, I thought I’d keep going with the felt ornaments. When I was cleaning out a drawer today that had inadvertently become a junk/catch-all drawer, there were 2 silver paperclips in the bottom of it which reminded me I wanted to make these.

The directions and a printable template for the skate are found here.

My favorite part of these is the trim. I looked through my trim box and found an old card with the trim wrapped around it that had come from someone’s grandmother’s stash. The notation at the bottom said it was originally sold as 3 yards at 4-1/2 cents per yard. I would love to know what garment it was originally purchased to adorn.
