DIY Stitched Ornament

Posted by Meghan Quinones

I have to admit, I have never really embroidered before. I remember as a kid giving it a try, but I guess it never really stuck. When I saw the Sublime Stitching Embroidery Patterns, I knew I had to give this craft another try!

What drew me to the Vintage Ornaments were the adorable designs. The patterns looked pretty basic. Remember: I am new at this and easy is my best friend! All you have to do is iron the pattern right to your fabric. The best part is, you can use the iron-on over-and-over! You can make 3 of the same design if you want! I also only used one type of stitch for my entire pattern. This obviously made it much easier for me. I only had to remember one stitch! You could, however, use different stitches if you are more advanced!

If you are not feeling the ornament, make sure you check out some of our other textiles you can decorate!
