Retro Embroidered Felt Christmas Ornament
Have fun making a quick and easy retro 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.
First, I cut a basic ornament shape from felt, then I 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.
Finally, the finished ornament design! I don’t think it looks too wonky all finished. Does it?
I added a little poly fill stuffing, then sewed the backing on with a blanket stitch.
