12 Holiday Ornaments to Sew

Can you believe it is the end of July already? I am wondering where summer has gone. I feel like it has flown by this year. This is the time of year I start working on holiday sewing, how about you? It's the perfect time to get a jump start on making gifts and planning projects. If you want a printable for your list making, here is a link. 

Let's talk about ornaments, they make great keepsakes. I make ornaments for my boys to hang on our tree now but also for my boys to have when they are older and have trees of their own. Ornaments make great gifts for co-workers, teachers, or anytime you've got to give multiple people gifts. A handmade ornament is perfect.

Here are 12 ornaments to sew. You can click on the photo or the description to take you to the instructions and printable pattern pieces. If you want to get more projects like these from me, be sure to put your email here and you get them delivered to your inbox.

Free Pattern - Ideas Tote Notebook Cover and Pouch

Hello! I've got a new pattern for you today. If you're doing any summer traveling this might be what you need to take with you to jot down the inspiration you get while away. This pattern was originally going to be in my book, Sew Small 19 Bags to Sew. We would have had to change the name to Sew Small 20 bags to Sew! There just wasn't enough rom to add it in. So I am sharing it here today.

It holds a standard 6" x 9" stenographers notebook. It has a zipper pouch so your pens and pencils will stay put while moving around. Here is the correct size notebook on Amazon. 

The printable pattern and instructions can be found here.  I hope you enjoy making it.

Bunny Ears for you Pets Sewing Pattern

Lol! She's miserable.... but it's so much fun to see her in bunny ears.

This project came about because I received an email from Mary asking if I had a sewing pattern for bunny ears for her cat. I didn't but the more I thought about her idea, the more I wanted to make some ears for Ruby.

Here's Otis, he slept through the photo shoot. I'm not sure if he knows he has them on.

You'll find the printable pattern pieces below. Here are the instructions for making the ears. If you want to more projects like this, sign up here and they'll be delivered to your inbox.


1. Arrange the front of the ear onto the back ear with the interfacing sandwiched between. The bottom edges should be aligned and the sides centered. Top stitch around the outer edge of the inner ear. 

2. Repeat step 1. For the second ear.

3. Measure and cut a piece of elastic for the headband. Ruby”s elastic is xx for reference.

4. Layer the two felt ovals and place an end of the elastic in between on each side. (See photo above)

5. Secure with pins and top stitch around outside.

6. Next, we will be hand stitching the ears to the top of the headband. I found using a slip stitch all the way around helped secure the ears. You can tack the ears together at the bottom if they need extra support.

I’m guessing the biggest challenge of this project is getting your pet to sit still with ears on for a photo! If you make some ears please tag me on Instagram @jenniferjangles or post it on the Jennifer Jangles Facebook page. I would love to see all the bunny’s.

Sea Turtle Softie is wearing them here.

Mail Order and Printed PDF's Now Available

Hello! Lately, I have had a lot of customers ask me to print their PDF patterns and mail them. I am always happy to do this and have been doing it for quite awhile. Today I realize I should announce it to everyone, juts in case you didn't know this was a service I offer. Let me fill you in on two services I offer for getting you the Jennifer Jangles patterns you want to sew.

Mail Order: There is now a convenient mail order form available here for paying by check. You can print the order form, fill it out, and mail it in with your check for paper patterns. If you don't have a printer to print the order form, no worries you can write the information I will need on a piece of paper and mail it along with your check. See the form here.  All mail order patterns are printed paper patterns.

PDF Patterns Printed and Mailed: I offer a lot of paper patterns here on my website. But there are even more PDF patterns. If you don't have a printer, you don't have a way of sewing with them and that's a problem. To get your digital patterns printed and mailed, contact me with a list of the patterns you would like to purchase. I will send you a digital and custom invoice for the patterns(because shipping costs apply), you'll pay and I will print and ship your order. Easy peasy! You can contact me here.

I hope this helps make your shopping experience easier.

Have a great day,

Make your own Glittered Felt Fabric for Crafts, It's so Easy!


Hello! I am dropping in today to show you how easy and fun it is to make your own glittered felt. I don't know about you but I love anything sparkly so anything glittered catches my eye.  I heard that the reason people are attracted to glitter goes back to our cave-woman days. Water was needed for survival an glitter mimics the sparkle of water. Who knew that?

Glitter felt is really fun to add to your felted holiday ornaments and other crafts. I used the felt here in my ballerina shoes Make a Friend sewing pattern.

So let's get started. Your going to need:

1. Iron, any iron will do, just turn off the steam.

2. Felt, I prefer a wool blend. It sew better than any synthetic. If you do choose a synthetic felt, be sure that it can withstand high temperatures. You don't want it melting when you iron it so please test it first. My favorite if this felt from National Non-wovens.

3. Glitter vinyl. This is the vinyl that is used with vinyl cutters to make t-shirts and other crafts. You can find Heat Transfer Vinyl here on Amazon.


1. To make the felt, cut a piece of vinyl just smaller than the piece of felt. Arrange the glitter vinyl on top. Press down with your iron on high heat. Be sure to follow the instructions on the vinyl for details on adhering.


2. Once the vinyl has cooled, peel off the protective film. That's it! You now have glittered felt, easy right?


Pin this so you can remember.
