Super Easy Christmas Tree Ornament, two Christmas Tree shapes with some beads and held together with blanket stitch using all six strands of the embroidery thread.
Here is a graph version of the Blue Heart if you want to duplicate the shape, that I have used.
Trace the image onto a light weight tissue paper to use as patterns.
I keep the tissue from anything that I buy that they wrap in tissue paper.
In this case I embroidered on both sides of the ornament so I traced 2 images and reversed them an then embroidered through the tissue paper using a Woven Star Stitch.
I sewed the layers together with 2 lines of stitching, starting each one at the top center point of the heart, so that the stiches are symetrical, using a Chain Stitch along the dotted line and stuff with polyester fibre fill just before closing.
Trim the edges carefully through both layers of felt using Pinking Shears.
Have Suggestions orany improvements? I would love to hear from you.
