Never throw away your scraps!

I’m a part-time ESL teacher and June is always my busiest month. I don’t have time in June to work on big projects so instead I use the few free hours I have each day to make small kimekomi ornaments using scraps left over from other projects. They are quick and fun, each only taking between 1-2 hours to make. They are also my best sellers at Christmas craft fairs, so it’s important that I take time during the year to increase my stock. They are made the same way as a large size kimekomi using 4cm and 5cm diameter foam balls. I don’t use batting and I keep the design very simple.

Here are my latest little ornaments made from scraps.

These are perfect for small table top trees and make great gifts for coworkers and acquaintances.
