Christmas ornies

Here are a couple of Christmas ornies that I've made. They almost look like paper piecing, which I cannot do.   I regret that I don't recall where I found the pattern for the angel but you'll find a similar paper piecing pattern here.

This Santa was a pattern that  Eleanor Burns  showed how to make on her TV program many years ago; it was from her book 'Christmas Quilts & Crafts '(Quilt in a Day).  Back then there were some fabulous sewing how-to shows on PBS ... those were the days.  You'll find a paper piecing pattern for a similar Santa here.
I find myself making these two over and over again so I guess that makes them timeless for me.  They make nice package tie-ons, too.

They are both so cute, Kate! Love the idea of using a button as the angel's head :)
