We set up our Christmas tree a couple days ago, and as a final touch, we hung our Teddy Ornaments that we made last year!  I can’t believe it’s been one whole year since we designed, created and blogged about these three cuties, and it amazes me how popular they’ve become!  This year is extra special since it is Myla’s first Christmas :)  She watched with great interest as we were setting up the tree!

I thought I would do a round-up of some beautiful crocheted Christmas ornaments that I found in case you want to add some more crafty and crocheted goodness to your tree!  The free patterns are available for all of these ornaments (click through the links to access them!)!

Row 1: Teddies by me, Snowflowers by The Purl Bee, Christmas Trees by Annemaries Haakblog

Row 2: Scalloped Circle by Craft Snob, Baby Owls by A Morning Cup of Jo Creations, Sock Monkey by Linda Cyr

Row 3: Snowmen by Audra Brown, Snowflake by The New Crochet, Angels by Roswitha Mueller

I think the baby owls are absolutely adorable!  I’ve always greatly admired my friend Josephine Wu’s work as she is a very talented amigurumi designer.  If you haven’t seen her work already, go check out her blog “A Morning Cup of Jo Creations”.  I also think the “Scalloped Circle” would make a lovely frame for a picture or for another ornament as well- could you see a little snowman or angel in that circle? 

Will you be making any of these ornaments to add to your tree in the last days before Christmas?

Can you imagine that whilst at Hogwarts Remus has this one teddy bear on his bed, like right up till 7th year

And there is no argument like the teddy bear would 100% be called Mr. Pilkington

And Sirius always teases him mercilessly about the teddy and the fact that its goddamn name is Mr. Pilkington.

But one day Remus walks in on Sirius sitting on his bed just cuddling the teddy.

And Sirius jumps up immediately and proclaims that it’s “A Study on Muggle toys, Remmie!”

But Remus just chuckles, and sits down on his bed, and gets Sirius to sit back down with him

And Remus just wraps his arms around Sirius and Mr. Pilkington

And it’s completely ridiculous

But they just stay like that for hours


And then on their next holiday Remus takes Sirius to a muggle toy shop

And Sirius picks out his own teddy “To keep Mr. Pilkington company, Remmie!”

And it’s a lady teddy bear with a sparkly bow because she was the most fabulous one there and would Sirius ever go for anything less than the most fabulous

And the teddy is christened Lady Huddersfield on the spot

And Remus and Sirius just have these two fancy-ass teddy bears in their dorms like the goddamn dorks they are

And James always moans but secretly he loves them and is maybe a bit jealous too
