How to Make a Fabric Christmas Ornament
It’s coming on Christmas and I decided to make some Christmas ornaments. This idea popped into my head. It is a super easy Fabric Christmas ornament. This is a beginner sewing project that uses both machine and hand stitching. It is a very quick and easy project to make so you can make many of them. You can also embellish them with trim and ribbon if you like. I prefer the simple look for my tree.
I used a Christmas fabric that I had on hand for my ornament. This snowflake fabric was purchased from JOANN Fabric & Craft Stores. You could head to Hobby Lobby, Fabric.com or Onlinefabricstore.net to get exactly what you need for your fabric Christmas ornaments. It is totally up to you.

What you will Need: How to Make Fabric Christmas Ornaments
- Pattern You Can Get By Clicking on this Link
- Scrap of cotton fabric
- scrap of Pellon 808 or similar
- 1 6″ piece of cording for hanger
- 1 jingle bell
- standard sewing supplies
Step 1: Cut your fabrics
Using the pattern piece cut four fabric pieces and four interfacing pieces.
Step 2: Fuse the Interfacing
Fuse the interfacing to the wrong side of the fabric following the manufacturer’s instructions.
Step 3: Stitch the top edges
Place two top edges right sides together and stitch using a 1/4″ seam allowance. Repeat for the other two pieces. You should have two pieces with the tops sewn together.
Step 4: Join the two pieces
Fold the cording in half and place it between the two pieces so it hangs between the right sides of the pieces. Stitch the tops of the pieces together as shown.
Step 5: Stitch the bottoms
Stitch the bottom pieces together one by one until you have one left. Leave an opening in the last edge for turning.
Step 6: Turn right sides out
Turn the ornament right sides out through the opening and poke out the corners using a chopstick or That Purple Thang.
Step 7: Close the opening and add the Jingle bell
Close the opening using ladder stitch. If you are unfamiliar with ladder stitch check out this video. Instead of tying off a knot at the end push your needle though to the center of the bottom and add the jingle bell to the bottom of the ornament. You have finished your fabric Christmas ornament.
