Christmas Ornaments
For this project we used the designs from the Christmas Ornament Set.
The set includes designs in 2 sizes, both sizes are for the small hoop (4" x 4"). You can use either of them.

You will need :
  • embroidery threads in accordence with the color card,
  • polyester craft felt,
  • light-weight cut-away embroidery stabilizer,
  • scissors,
  • universal glue,
  • thin cord or heavy yarn for the loops.
For all ornaments, you need to embroider each file twice - the pattern as it is and its mirror image.

Upload the files into your machine. Select threads. Stabilize a piece of polyester craft felt. Hoop the fabric tightly. Embroider the first design.

Stabilize another piece of felt, hoop it tightly. In your embroidery machine, use the function "flip" to make the mirror image of the same design. Embroider the mirror pattern.
