People always ask why I don't sell my ornaments. I always tell them it's because they can't afford them. Seriously -- that West Holmes Knight ornament would require someone to take a second mortgage! I had a couple of people, though, who I knew would truly appreciate some sort of school mascot ornament, so I came up with a simpler design of just the knight. I had purchased some clipart from Etsy for the other knight and it also included this image:
I used that to design my little guy. I substituted our school colors and put the initials on the shield and here's the finished product:
It was still a lot of work, but nothing like that knight on horseback. The recipients were very pleased and I think he turned out great!
In case anyone happens by and thinks I've stolen someone else's work or thinks I'm profiting from it:
- I purchased the clip-art. I did not do a "right click/save as."
- I am not selling a pattern made from this clip-art. I'm not even giving away a pattern made from this clip-art.
- I am not selling ornaments made from this clip-art.
