Felt Stitched Ornaments

 Welcome to the Bake Craft Sew Along! If you love to sew then you won’t want to miss a day of sewn handmade gift ideasAccording to Kelly is featuring gifts that can be crafted and A Southern Fairytale is sharing recipes perfect for making edible gifts! Don’t forget to enter our SEW Amazing Giveaway. Just visit Nest Of Posies today.


Hello!   I’m Kellie from Nest of Posies.  Lover of all carbs, crafts & design.  Homemade shop owner & most importantly Mommy to 3.  I truly find pleasure in making our home creative & yummy to our souls.

I’m thrilled to be over here for the Bake, Craft & Sew Along!  I had the privilege of meeting Cindy back in April at the SNAP! Conference & I can attest to her being as sweet as can be in real life!

Truth me told, I’m a huge lover of felt & handmade items.  So it was only fitting for me to join the two & share these very simple Felt Stitched Ornaments with you all.    Actually, there’s 2 types of ornaments here.  My basic sewing machine does embroidery & of course, all the other stitching that I rarely use.  I thought it would be fun to actually use those stitches to create these ornaments.  So if you don’t have a machine that does embroidery work, you can most certainly use all your stitches that your machine does & create these in a matter of minutes!

I simply played around with my stitches & went to town.  I used red & white thread for my stitching, but obviously you can use any color.  The sky is the limit with all the possibilities!  I think they would even be fun as gift tags!

After I finished with the stitching I used a dye & cut them into a circle and cut an additional circle for the backing.

Punched a hole in the top with a regular hole punch.

Glued the 2 sides together with hot glue.

Threaded simple red ribbon through the punched hole for hanging.


Within minutes you have personalized Stitched Ornaments or gift tags.  I even thought of doing personal names on the felt for our family.  Again, endless possibilities for very little time & money = my kind of project!

To see more of my recent Christmas projects (yes, I’ve already started making Christmas crafts!) Head on over to Nest of Posies & take a peek.  I’d be delighted for you to stop by!

Thanks again for having me over, Cindy!
