Christmas Crafts


cookie cutters in desired shapes
embroidery needles
embroidery floss
scissors for both paper and fabric
permanent marker fine tip or pencil
1 safety pin


Trace cookie cutter on paper to make template. Trace the inside and out side to see which you like better.

                                           Cut out the line that you like best for template.

                      Pin template to fabric; this way you are sure not to leave ink marks on fabric

                                                  Cut two pieces of fabric per ornament

Embroider both pieces of fabric. Use two or three strands of embroidery floss.
Put wrong sides together place one safety pin in middle to hold while sewing.
Use a blanket stitch to stitch edges together, stop about one inch from ending remove safety pin and stuff ornament. Finish closing.
                                         Finish with a piece of embroidery floss as a hanger.

hang on the tree. Give it a try
