It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
I know – it seems crazy! But I was looking at my calendar the other day and counting backwards from Thanksgiving and realized NOW is the the time to launch this club. That’ll give you plenty of time to sign up and get your materials so you’re all ready to start stitching when the first pattern goes out on September 4.
So here are all the details. . .
Felt Christmas tree ornaments are the BEST. They look beautiful – all warm and festive. They’re impossible to break, making them the perfect choice for young kids. They look great as package decorations. And they’re lots of fun to make!
Once you have the patterns in your hands you can make tons of them for everyone you know. Spread the felty joy!
Doesn’t that sound like fun?
What You Get
- twelve full-sized PDF patterns delivered by email (no enlarging needed)
- a complete color and stitch guide
- links to video tutorials teaching you everything you need to know
What You Need
- wool felt (10 colors)
- matching embroidery thread (also 10 colors)
- tiny amount of polyester fiberfill (you could use a few cotton balls instead)
- roughly 4 yards of cord for hanging loops (I’ll be using baker’s twine)
Maybe the thought of gathering all the materials at this particularly crowded time of year doesn’t appeal to you? Get a kit instead of just the pattern! It comes with the felt, the thread, the twine, and all the pattern pieces already printed on freezer paper or Sulky Sticky Fabri-solvy. Just open the package and start stitching! Get that kit here.
You Might Also Want. . .
- a way to transfer the patterns to the felt – I’m a huge fan of The Magical Embroidery Stuff for that, but these transfer pens also work well. If you have a favorite method – use it. If you’re new to stitching on felt, take a look at this post for more info.
- freezer paper – I like this printable stuff because I’m lazy and hate to trace. If you’re not lazy you can get a huge roll of freezer paper for a few dollars in the wraps and foils section of the grocery store.
- size 8 embroidery needle
- Thread Heaven (thread conditioner that eliminates all stickiness if your Sulky Sticky Fabri-Solvy has been exposed to heat – awesome for those of us who tote our stitching around in a hot car)
These patterns will be great for beginners! I’ll only be using the most basic stitches and the patterns will have links to videos teaching you all of them. And all the ornaments will be “pancake style” – just a front and back with no tricky shaping.
There’s still plenty of time left for Christmas crafting – especially for small, portable projects like these. Get ready to stitch up some fun!
I hope you’ll all join me for some fun holiday stitching!
