Kicking off the series is this felt take on Sunbonnet Sue, the iconic applique quilt pattern.* This ornament came from one of my grandparents. Sue’s clothes are bordered in gold, beaded trim, and she’s ice skating on blades made from paper clips!
*I have since learned that this little lady isn’t actually a Sunbonnet Sue! If you want to learn about felt ornaments from an expert, check out this lady’s felt ornaments blog. It’s excellent!
Â Her red coat is stuffed with batting and her hood and mittens are made from a second layer of white felt. Nice and cozy!
