STEP BY STEP CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS
Step By Step tutorial

1-ornament hoop (These are from Michael's. Sizes may vary slightly from store to store.)
3-Pellon 809 fusible cut away stabilizer
And, of course, all of your everyday embroidery supplies💕
Hope this helps! I’m here to answer questions if you have them😍
Canvas Type fabric and Pellon 809 (fusible) is what I like to use for ornaments. Fabric can be anything you want really. Just make sure it’s not too thin
I fuse the two together by ironing. (This helps prevent puckering)
Hoop your fused stabilizer/ fabric and attach to the machine
Pull up your design on machine.
Here we have our design already on the machine and ready to go. I have used here the 3.5” border (which fits the 4” ornament hoop perfectly) and our new “coming soon” mail truck ornament design.
Just a tip really
Make sure the border stitched first. Again, this will help reduce puckering
After the design has finished stitching, you’ll want to cut around the design about 2-3”. Maybe less once you’ve done a few and are certain how much excess to leave
Center your border with the hoop that has the adjuster on top. (Make sure you have loosened it or your going to have a hard time
Press fabric over the inside hoop and cut away the excess. Tighten the adjuster once you have done so.
Last, just add your ribbon and you’re done!
