Felt Christmas ornaments

I did this kit back in college in the winter of 1980. I used these ornaments on my Christmas tree for the next 10 or so years and then "abandoned" in favor of more "grownup" ornaments. While sorting out old decorations recently, I found these ornaments. After 30 years, they'd started to fall apart. However, I couldn't bear to toss them out, so I fixed them up, re-gluing sequins and such. Now they're back on the tree and I couldn't be more happier!
