With the holidays rapidly approaching, I pulled out my cookie cutters. This sparked the idea to create embroidered ornaments using the cookie cutter shapes as my templates.
I always have a bunch of these gel pens in a jar at my desk. I often use them in my watercolor paintings to add white highlights but they are also fantastic for marking dark fabrics and for using on black paper.
Interfacing is optional but I love it because it makes cotton fabric a lot less transparent so you can not see the stitching in the back from the front. It also makes the fabric a little more firm and easy to sew on.
Above is an example of lightweight interfacing.
Fill the ornament, trying to spread out the fiber fill evenly.
I just used my needle to bring a piece of thread through the top of the ornament. I tied it so that I could use that to hang the ornament. Also these would be great as a gift topper.
Thanks for stopping by! Happy almost holidays!
