Start by making 2 pompoms using your pompom maker. I used light yellow for the boy and pink for the girl.
Cut out 2 circles for each face. Embroider a simple face on each. I did eyes, cheeks, mouths and a little squiggle for hair. Sew around the circle and stuff with a little bit of polyfil before you complete the circle.
Next I knit a little scarf for each baby by casting on 5 and garter stitching for about 4 inches. You could also cut a piece of felt or ric rac for this.
Next, hot glue all the pieces together... wouldn't these be cute at a baby shower?
I had a lot of this yarn left so I decided to knit up a little striped hat to match the ornament. I wrapped it up in a cellophane bag... a perfect gift for an expecting mom.
Have a wonderful day baby!
