It’s that wonderful time of year where we wish for snow and start thinking about Christmas. Ornaments are one of my favorite parts of Christmas – to me they hold so much magic and memories as they sit on the Christmas tree. Today I’m going to show you how to make an easy ornament out of Christmas fabric.

Supplies:

Two coordinating pieces of fabric – I used Alpine Wonderland by Riley Blake (It’s the perfect Christmas fabric!)

Ribbon – I used Vintage Ribbon from The Ribbon Retreat

Thread

Medium or Heavy Weight Pellon Stabilzer

Pinking Shears

1. First cut your pieces. If you are doing a pattern piece like me (the girl holding the squirrel) and then cut two coordinating fabrics a little bigger than the front piece. Basically the coordinating fabric will frame the pattern piece. If you decide not to do a pattern piece, just cut 2 pieces of fabric in what ever shape you desire.

Then cut 1 piece of pellon to be about a 1/4 inch smaller than your two pieces of fabric.

Lastly, cut a ribbon piece to the desired length (it will be looped), I did mine about 5 inches long.

2. If you are doing a pattern piece on top, sew that piece onto one of your pieces of coordinating fabric.

Now layer your pieces accordingly:

One coordinating fabric piece facing the table

Pellon

Ribbon (it is pictured wrong, so make sure a loop is made out the top)

then your last piece of fabric with the pattern piece sewn to it.

3. Now all you need to do is sew around the perimeter of the layers (about 1/2 inch away from edge). Then cut the edges with pinking shears and you’re done!
