Red Posies Felt Christmas Ornaments

Fairfield World’s 80th Birthday Celebration

If you are a crafter, chances are you’ve used Poly-fil a time or two. (or much, much more)

Would you believe they’ve been around for 80 years?

My grandma used poly-fil for years, and so have I.

So when given the opportunity, I  jumped at the chance to help them celebrate.

And talk about celebrating, they even sent us a box of goodies to inspire us.

How cool is that? (my favorite was the cheese popcorn)

With Christmas coming soon, I decided to make a couple of Red Posies Felt Ornaments.

I enjoy stitching from time to time, but because I’m not an expert by any means,

I’m going to call them “Simple Homespun Charm”.

Directions:

  • Die-cut the flowers, leaves, and circles out of felt.
  • Arrange the die-cut pieces on the felt.

  • Add a small dab of fabri-tac adhesive* under the top felt piece to hold it in place while you do your stitching.
  • I like to start with the top layer first and work my way down so that I’m not going through as many layers of felt at one time.

  • Hand sew simple stitches in white and red thread around the pieces.

  • Use small, close stitches to close the ornament 3/4 of the way closed.
  • Add a small amount of poly-fil into the center of the ornament and finish sewing it closed.

  • Use a large hole needle to add twine to the top of the ornament for hanging.
  • Adhere a small bow onto the top of the ornament with fabri-tac adhesive*.
  • To add a small word, like the word joy, iron the letters onto the felt circle before stitching.
