Prepare the Pattern Pieces

  • Cut out the pattern pieces with a slight margin around each one.
  • Use an iron set to medium heat with no steam to fuse the pattern pieces to the felt.
  • Cut out the pattern pieces on the lines. Layout the pieces as desired.

Embellish the Ornament with Embroidery Stitches

  • Now comes the fun part. You can keep it simple and glue the pieces down in place, or you can use a single strand of coordinating floss to whip stitch the pieces down.
  • Finally, you can use three strands of floss to embellish and attach the pieces in place.

Finish the Ornament

  • Once the front is all stitched down and embellished it’s time to assemble the ornament. Lay the front on top of the back. Use a whip stitch or a blanket stitch to sew around the outside of the ornament.
  • When you get to the peak of the roof, attach a loop of twine or ribbon for a hangar.
  • When there are just 2 or 3 inches left open, add the stuffing to give the ornament some depth.
  • Then finish stitching the ornament closed.

Hi! My name is Amy Chappell, and I blog over at Ameroonie Designs. I currently live in Wyoming with my husband and six kids. I love being a mom but needed an outlet that would give me something to do that stayed done. Enter sewing and creating. I love the satisfaction of taking fabric and ideas and making something new. I also love that blogging has given me a way to meet new people and find a community of amazing people who love fabric and sewing as much as I do.

    1. It’s in the Sewing Library that is linked in this blog post. As it notes on the top of the library page, there is more than one page of templates, make sure you are using the numbered buttons at the bottom to scroll though the pages.

  2. I have tried twice to have this sent to my email and nothing ever comes. Can you please help me? This is SO cute!
