Making these Felt Snoopy Christmas Ornaments would take a good 5-10 hours I would estimate, possibly more. It’s been a long time since I worked on one of these. The tricky bits are getting them stuffed just right, getting the stitching to look good and getting those tiny beads and sequins on. Plus, I’m always loosing the needle!
