Handmade Ornaments

I have made tons of ornaments over the years. Some I have sold and some I have given away. For the past two years I have had some of my most popular ornaments for sale in my Etsy shop.
I have several different colors of a mini stocking.
This is one of my favorite because it looks good no matter what color fabric I use. It is easy to fill with small goodies or candies and makes a nice gift.
Who doesn't like a teddy bear?
And another cute little guy is a penguin.

I think they are pretty darn cute but I haven't sold a single one. I was starting to think I am the only person who really likes them...and then.... I got an email from a former employer. She asked if I remembered this ornament and she tells me  that she puts it out on display every year. It had to be over 15 years ago that I gave it to her.

I feel a lot better now.

That's the problem I have when trying to sell crafts- I don't seem to be able to pick things to make that people will actually buy. The story of my crafty life.

I think they're all cute. My favorite has to be the penguin.
