Family Trees: more ornaments

Jack and Jill by Salley Mavor

Before we leave on our trip, I want to show more pictures of my Pocketful of Posies tree. The basic instructions for making dolls similar to these are in my how-to book Felt Wee Folk. To see these ornaments in person, visit the Family Trees event at the Concord Museum, which will continue until January 1st, 2013. Time is limited, so I’m just going to post pictures. Can you guess which nursery rhymes are depicted in the individual ornaments?

  1. I’m delighted to have these closeups, Salley. I just got home from a trip to the Museum today with my friends Margie and Sally, whom I took to your Lowell exhibit last year. Your “Posies” tree was by far the BEST and most artistic in the whole exhibit. We couldn’t get close enough to capture these exquisite details – thank you so much!

  2. Those are nothing short of amazing! I love the sheep. Have a fantastic trip; can’t wait to see the “doorways if Antarctica!”

  3. Thank you for the wonderfully detailed pictures. I have to “second” 2 other comments: (1) Each one is a piece of art and (2) I love the sheep! Have a wonderful trip!

  4. I have never seen such beautiful ornaments although it doesn’t surprise me!! Your tree must be amazing, so glad you decided to share them with us! I look forward to trying your cheese straw recipe too, love cheese straws and this one looks fantastic! Thanks Salley!

  5. Gorgeous! Wish I even knew where to begin to craft something as beautiful. For instance, I look at them, and can’t even figure out what you used as the “frame”, that you then covered with embroidered felt. And how do they all come together and stay, without falling apart. I mean, I’ve made a few of your (former) kits, and a few items from each of your books, but this is a whole different level!
