Thank you for stitching this ’cool’ Christmas ornament! I’ve provided a template below which is the exact size that was used in the pictured finishes. You just need to grab some matboard, cardboard, batting, ribbon & all of those extra little bits to fully-finish your series!
Please follow my other Flat-Finishing tutorials for guidance on setting up your cut boards, lacing & stitching front to back. Print out this page & adjust as necessary so that the dimensions of the template measure what it should.
I chose to use ribbon for a hanger & added woolfelt leaves balls for a ’berry’ sweet finish. I order my woolfelt sheets & balls from a variety of Etsy shops—(type woolfelt into the search function & go!)
I used 3 woolfelt balls & tacked them together with a sharp needle & matching thread. I then tacked 2 woolfelt leaves to the berry cluster. The leaves are approximately 1.25” tall & .75” wide—you can freehand them or use the small template below. Once the leaves were attached, I then added a thin ribbon bow with more tacking stitches. Once that was complete, it all got tacked onto the top of the ornament!
Have fun finishing & be sure to show your finishes using the hashtag— #handsondesign & #coolyule.
Here’s a quick link to the template!
