Stuffed Felt Ornaments


Stuffed felt Christmas ornaments: A handicraft project

These turned out so cute, and they were fairly easy for a beginning to intermediate sewing project.

  • Draw the shape onto a piece of felt, making it about 1/4″ bigger than you’d like the finished product to be.
  • Double the felt and cut out the front and back pieces at the same time.
  • Decide which sides will face outward.  Go ahead and sew any buttons, beads or other small pieces onto each piece.
  • Place the fronts together so that you can only see the “wrong” sides.
  • Sew a straight stitch all the way around the felt, leaving about a 1/4″ seam.  BE SURE TO LEAVE 1″-1 1/2″ OPEN SO YOU CAN TURN THE ORNAMENT INSIDE OUT.
  • After turning the ornament inside out, fill it with popcorn sized pieces of batting until it’s as fluffy as you desire.
  • Sew up the opening with a simple straight stitch.

The kids chose to add a little piece of embroidery thread afterward as a hook, but I sewed a ribbon hook into mine (bell) as I stiched around the edges.  My hook is much stronger and more attractive.

    I have included some of these books in our December reading list and am doing the Names of Jesus unit study. Thank you for sharing these.
