After finishing up my Tiny Christmas Runner a few weeks ago, I realized that I could use those tiny embroidered designs to make some ornaments. In order to do that, I traced the embroidery designs onto a larger piece of background fabric with some space between them, and stitched them up one evening this past week.
To make one ornament, I cut the embroidery into 2.5 inch squares, and made a tiny quilt sandwich with a piece of batting and a scrap of flannel.
A scrap of Christmas fabric, 1.5 x 8 inches was pressed, folded, and sewn into a loop for the hanger.
To give the ornament a little more shape, I added a smaller piece of batting behind the embroidery. Then I pinned everything together and stitched around the square, 1/4 inch from each edge. To finish the edges, I dug out my mom's old pinking shears and trimmed all the way around!
Sweet and simple!
An hour or so later, here they all are!
