Felt Christmas ornaments

Hello everybody! How are you doing? For the last month or so I have been working on Christmas cards and some Christmas gifts to give to friends. I don't know about you, but I much prefer giving and receiving handmade gifts, especially for Christmas - be it handmade ornaments, cookies, a nice card .... Anything really. I think a thoughtful handmade gift makes the holidays even more special. Do you like to give/receive handmade gifts? If yes, what is your favourite thing to give/receive? Last year I was giving away these mini angels (along with homemade cookies), and this year I am working on felt ornaments and will probably make some homemade "nutella" (probably better if I call it "hazelnut spread") to give it away together with the ornament.

You can find several recipes for homemade hazelnut spread online, so I will not share the one I am using, but I will share with you some of the felt ornaments I've made so far. Some of them have already been claimed, but I still have a little bit of time to make more. However, I realized I need to (or better said "want to") buy some new dies - e.g. Christmas tree die, a snowman die. You know, just to make my life easier and not have to cut everything out myself. Do you have any suggestions on which dies I could (should) buy? 

These are all completely handmade by me. I used different colours of felt, beads from my stash and some embroidery thread for the stitching. I used Memory box dies for the stockings, circle dies for the Christmas puddings and Spellbinders round corner square die for some of the presents (it took me a while to remember I have those and I don't have to cut the base out by hand). Christmas trees have been cut out by scissors. Do you like them? Which one is your favourite? To be honest I can't decide. I reeeeeeally like the Christmas tree one (though that one was quite a pain to cut out by scissors, so I reeeally want a die with a similar shape), but I also love the little presents and that pink stocking. Heck, I really can't choose just one. I like them all and I hope the recipients will like them as well.

So much from me for today. Have a wonderful December! And merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year in case I don't make it back here before the year ends. :)
