Having fun making a quick and easy embroidered felt Christmas ornament! Make any shape, color or theme easily with some felt, embroidery floss,  a little piece of ribbon and some poly fill.

Here I started with a basic ornament shape and added a variety of embroidery stitches.

I started with two rows of chain stitch.

Then I added some stem stitch lines — not too straight! Sigh. Maybe I should have marked them? I think I need more practice! I haven’t been embroidering for a long time, and it is showing!

To try to fill the space and add more interest, I added some French knots.

And, then added some embroidered stars in the middle.

The finished ornament!  I don’t think it looks too wonky all finished.  Does it?

I added a little poly fill stuffing, and sewed the backing on with a blanket stitch.
