Wreath-Inspired Treadle-Stitched Christmas Ornament

The girls helped me stuff another homemade Christmas ornament today, for their aunt.  The nostalgic cotton print we were using contained small wreaths, which inspired our circular design. We chose vintage buttons to stitch into the middle of the lightly stuffed circle.  A bit of grosgrain ribbon completed our wreath with a red bow.

We hope our recipient will appreciate that the ornament was hand-stitched on the treadle sewing machine once used by her great-great grandmother.
