Sewing: Week Fifty One: Fabric Christmas Ornaments

Fabric Christmas Ornaments: 3ten.ca

Fabric Christmas ornaments are here – they are so cute and easy to make, you should try them out. Did you see the bunched fabric balls from earlier this week? Well, I needed something to make with all of those white squares, so I made these ornaments. Let’s get started!

What You Need

  • 1/2 a yard of fabric
  • scraps of fabric
  • 10-20 feet of ribbon
  • serger
  • machine
  • scissors
  • matching thread
  • iron
  • ironing board
  • buttons

First, gather all of your fabric. I made two shapes. Squares, 4.5×4.5 and a holiday tag shape (it’s 6 inches tall and 4.4 inches wide). Cut them all out and press. Second, cut out all the ribbon. I cut mine between 6 and 7 inches.

Then, pin them right sides together, with the ribbon twisted in between, and serge all but one side – leave the whole side open to turn the ornament right side out. Then, top stitch all around, closing the open hole. This takes a bit of time, however, the top stitching makes them look adorable. Once you’ve top stitched them, press.

For the white fabric Christmas ornaments I used scraps of fabric and made shapes. Pin them in place and top stitch them on, or use button and stitch them on in any pattern you like.

Done!

Don’t they look adorable? One trick I would suggest is to twist the ribbon just 180 degrees so you make a nice loop which will hang nicely on the tree.

These fabric ornaments are a nice balance to the dimension ornaments of the bunched fabric balls and the twine ornaments. Contrast – works well.
