Easy Felt Christmas Tree Ornaments Using Machine Embroidery
These felt ornaments are super easy to make using your favorite embroidery designs. They are also kid-friendly, because they will not shatter if they fall.

For our ornaments we used the designs from the Snowflakes and Stockings and Snowmen Set.

You will need :
  • embroidery threads, either polyester or rayon,
  • polyester craft felt, it can be of any color, but we chose white,
  • scraps of fabric for the backing,
  • light-weight embroidery stabilizer, either cut- or tear-away,
  • crimping shears (scissors which make a wavy design on the edge of what you're cutting),
  • scissors,
  • #12 sewing needle and sewing thread,
  • narrow satin ribbon for loops.
Embroidery:
Stabilize a piece of felt. Hoop the fabric tightly and embroider the designs one by one. Cut away the excess fabric, leaving about 1/2" margins.

Assembly:
We decided to make the stocking ornaments functional - they can be used as tiny bags for small gifts or candy.
