Baby’s First Christmas: Embroidered Snowflake Ornament

babyembroideredornament02

I’m afraid I’m a bit behind on this post since Christmas is over, but our tree is still up so I thought I would share anyway. I wanted to make a handmade ornament to commemorate the baby’s first Christmas.

On one side I embroidered a snowflake, using a pattern I found online here.

In the stuffing I included a tiny lock of hair from his first haircut (more like trim) as a sentimental/old-fashioned/creepy tribute.
