I designed the pattern to fit these fun ornament frames I found at Hobby Lobby, but it would also fit in a 3″ embroidery hoop. Either way would look darling.















Embroidered Joy to the World Ornament

Supplies you will need:

  • Embroidery floss (specific colors I used are included on the pattern)
  • Embroidery supplies: hoop, needle, scissors
  • Frame or Hoop (3″ in diameter) for final ornament
  • fabric (I used white cotton)
  • Pattern joy-to-the-world-pattern

To create the stitching, just download the pattern and trace it onto a piece of fabric. You can use a water soluble pen or I like to just use a mechanical pencil. Follow the directions in the pattern to stitch it.  To finish the ornament, paint the frame or hoop and glue the stitching to it.  These are quick to stitch up and it would be easy to create a bunch for gifting to neighbors or friends.

These embroidery patterns available for free.
