I spotted these adorable felt tree ornaments and immediately set about sewing our own.
First we drew and cut out a tree template on thick paper:
We then pinned the tree template to two layers of felt and cut around the template:
We embroidered a design along one side of one of the felt trees:
We pinned the two trees together and whip stitched them together, sewing along the outline of the tree, stuffing it up as we made our way around:
After sewing up the tree ornament, we made a loop at the top before tying off the embroidery thread:
Our simple, stylish felt tree ornaments feel more special to our family because we made them ourselves.
