Ugly Christmas Sweater Ornaments

About six or seven years ago I purchased an ugly Christmas sweater cookie cutter. Every December my daughter and I would spend a Saturday baking and decorating ugly Christmas sweater cookies.  We had a lot of fun, but I'll be honest with you. I'm much better at sewing than I am cookie decorating!  After we moved, I realized it's not much fun to bake and decorate cookies alone.  So last year when I pulled that cookie cutter out, I used it as a template to create ugly Christmas sweater mug rugs that I sewed for gifts.  I even filmed all the steps for a YouTube tutorial video, but never edited the video. If I find time I'll do so yet this year - maybe :-) This year I used the same concept and created these ornaments as a post on the BERNINA We All Sew blog .  Not only are they quick to sew, they are small enough to be a great scrap-buster.
